Campus Safety and Support

Guide to Campus Safety and Supportive Services

At the University of Montana, we know that Campus Safety relies on the campus community. The University of Montana strives to maintain a safe and friendly environment for its students, employees, and visitors. This website is designed as a hub for links and information about campus safety efforts and contacts. Campus partners work together to address safety concerns and determine the best response while committing to required and expected confidentiality.

Advocacy and Support Services

SARC at the University of Montana provides free and confidential peer counseling and crisis intervention to student survivors of sexual and relationship violence as well as support and information for family and friends. Services are available to survivors at all stages of recovery, from initial crisis intervention to healing, through support groups and peer counseling. SARC is located at UM’s Curry Health Center. It is in Missoula, but they are happy to work with you in the Bitterroot and of course, you can always call.

Counseling assists students by addressing their counseling and psychotherapy needs helping them gain the most from their time on campus.  When a student's mental health care needs are beyond the scope of our services, we will assist with referrals to community-based providers for specialized or longer-term care.  Counseling Services is located in the garden level of the Curry Health Center and is open Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
