Provide Student Housing


UM Housing oversees residential operations for over 3,000 students, faculty, staff and their families, 365 days per year in three areas – residence halls, Lewis and Clark Village and University Villages. It also operates the Griz Card Center and houses the Office for Community Standards. Throughout the year, 12 distinct service areas employ over 120 students as well as up to 70 full-time and 10 to 15 temporary employees. Student and professional staff provide two levels of safety and security on-call response for all residential areas and the Griz Card systems, and maintenance and custodial staff are available to respond to any facility issues 24 hours per day, every day of the year. UM Housing is developing operational plans following the guidance of state, local and university public health officials, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, the Association of College and University Housing Officers – International, the Association for Student Conduct Administration, the National Association of Campus Card Users and the American College Health Association.

It is a shared responsibility of those working in, living in, or visiting UM Housing to take appropriate steps to protect one’s own and others’ health and safety. UM and UM Housing staff will regularly monitor and update practices and protocols to follow CDC and Montana guidelines. Updates may be provided to residents through a variety of communications, such as emails or other correspondence, updates to our UM Housing webpage, updates to building television monitors, or other methods. Residents are responsible for adhering to required health and safety practices and protocols. Additional UM Housing policies and expectations can be found on the UM Housing website.
