Welcome to the University of Montana!

Griz Welcome is a series of events for new incoming 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, included, and ready to study at UM. During this time, students participate in fall orientation, which includes information about class registration, residence halls, financial aid, and more. We also offer services such as Move-in Crew, a group of volunteers who help students move into their new home away from home. A variety of activities, from outdoor movies to river rafting trips, allow incoming students to explore campus and get to know their new community - beautiful Missoula, Montana.
