Missoula is an outdoor mecca where students enjoy many outdoor recreation including downhill/cross-country skiing, rock climbing, canoeing, kayaking, rafting, fishing, camping, and more! Missoula is the second largest city in Montana and is often referred to as the cultural center of Montana. Students take advantage of the city's unique cultural activities- downtown farmer's markets, art walks, festivals, and concerts in Caras Park just minutes from campus. Because of its mild winters and moderate summers, Missoula is referred to as the "Garden City."
Campus Location - University of Montana is located along the Clark Fork River near its confluence with the Bitterroot River in western Montana and at the convergence of five mountain ranges, thus is often described as the "Hub of Five Valleys." Missoula is an easy day drive from Glacier National Park, Yellowstone National Parks and Canada, and just miles from campus you will find numerous wilderness areas.
Helpful Information - Students at our campus enjoy recreating outdoors in all seasons. UM's Outdoor Program offers transportation, classes, workshops, and a full outdoor gear rental program for many outdoor activities.
Professional programs in pharmacy and physical therapy are closed.Limitations
