Great University, it is very nice to walk around, through the trees, along the "Oval" on the old sidewalk. Friendly town, relaxed atmosphere, next to the mountains. You can hike a short way up Mount Sentinel to the "M" for views over the city. You can walk a short way to the Clark Fork River, or along the river trail.

Stunning campus visually, and a top university internally. Plus it is still a bargain. We are proud alums. Refresh in the Copper Commons, visit the art museum, attend a concert or sporting event; it is all good.

Beautiful campus, lovely atmosphere, close to downtown. If you are fit, or want to be, the hike up the hill behind the campus is a great way to get an overall view.

This school was rather remarkable years ago, and due to circumstances beyond its control has fallen on hard times. Under Sheila Stearns, the place will get on the right course and will need some time to redefine itself. The future is bright for UM, and it should be fine in the future.

This lovely BIG campus was a pleasure to visit. many of the buildings are upen until 8 PM and the staff are friendly and helpful to visitors. The campus was quiet and we were told the enrollment is down but all in all a lovely place.

Those who are looking for an outstanding education in an amazing setting should consider this. Never think that a small state cannot have a world class University. Montana does.

My daughter graduated last year from UM. She enjoyed her experience and we enjoyed visiting. We recently went to Missoula to empty the storage unit we had rented. We took the time to visit campus. Some thoughts and ideas: 1) Climb the M. I know others have said this but it is a good hike that offers a great view... More

The University of Montana's campus is visitor friendly. Parking is abundant. Guided tours are available but we did not go on one. Everything is interesting, especially the library, book store & athletic facilities. Go Grizzlies!
