Visit the University of Montana

Students gather on the Oval for an evening Orientation event as a sunset lights up the sky

Come take us for a test drive.

You know how they say photos never capture the majesty of a mountain? Well, no matter what we write about UM – and it’s admittedly poetic – the very best way to understand what makes this place special is to visit Griz country for yourself. 

And you're in luck because UM offers prospective students and their families numerous ways to get to know us.
