The University of Montana
"Defined by a prestigious faculty, red-bricked architecture & expansive lawns, the century-old school is often referred to as the Harvard of the West" - Ski Magazine
The University of Montana was founded in 1893 in the burgeoning pioneer town of Missoula. More than a century later, UM still nurtures a tradition of cultural and scientific learning.
Located at the heart of western Montana’s stunning natural landscape, the University is a magnet for top-notch students, educators and researchers from across the country and around the globe. A city within a city, UM has an increasingly diverse population and rich culture.
The main campus spans 56 acres at the base of Mount Sentinel along the Clark Fork River and includes the park-like Oval at the center of campus, more than 60 buildings and a 25,200-seat football stadium. UM's 180-acre South Campus offers housing, a golf course and soccer, softball and track fields. Missoula College occupies two sites in central and west Missoula.
More than 15,000 students attend UM in Missoula. The University provides a broad range of educational experiences in the trades, liberal arts, graduate and postdoctoral study and professional training.
UM is an affiliation of four institutions around the state: the flagship campus in Missoula, The University of Montana Western located in Dillon, Montana Tech of The University of Montana in Butte, and The University of Montana-Helena College of Technology. Each institution has its own unique emphasis, character and learning environment.
The University's main campus is located approximately six miles from the Missoula International Airport. For more information, visit umt.edu
