Conference Housing

Conveniently located on the main campus of the University of Montana, the Residence Halls provide housing for participants of special groups, conferences or workshops, and youth camps which are affiliated with or sponsored by the University of Montana.

Our summer conference season typically runs from the end of May through the end of July. Certain dates during the summer have been known to be especially popular, thus resulting in limited occupancy, so we recommend that you book your conference well in advance to ensure availability.
