University of Montana

Welcome to the University of Montana!

Griz Welcome is a series of events providing opportunities for new students to become familiar with campus, get involved, meet other students, and have fun as fall classes kick off. Griz Welcome is our way of making incoming students feel comfortable and at home. During this time, students will participate in our fall orientation, which includes information about class registration, residence halls, financial aid, and more. We will also be offering services to students like Move-in Crew that will help students move into their new home away from home. We put on a variety of different activities, from outdoor movies to river rafting trips, to welcome incoming students to campus as well as to their new community - beautiful Missoula, Montana.
