Who We Are

Here at Montana Tech, we know students are at the heart of what we do. That's why we work to ensure they have equal access to our exceptional campus, activities, and programs, as is their civil right guaranteed by the Americans with Disabilities Act, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, and the Fair Housing ActTo ensure equal access, we collaborate with campus and community partners to provide reasonable accommodations and adjustments to qualified students with disabilities. Such accommodations "level the playing field" by removing unecessary barriers. They are determined on a case-by-case basis by student's documentation and personal history, and tailored to each individual situation. Pregnant students and students with temporary injuries may also be eligible for services.

Electronic & Physical Access

Montana Tech is committed to ensuring digital access and improving the user experience for everyone. We are in the process of ensuring our electronic materials meet current Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) requirements.

Butte sits at a very high altitude, and our campus is situated on severa hills, so there is a risk of altitude sickness or shortness of breath until you have acclimated to the climate. As our unique and historic campus first opened its doors in 1900, there are buildings on campus that are over 100 years old that were not created with accessibility in mind. Knowing this, we do our best to accommodate students while preserving historic integrity. Three of our buildings (Main Hall, Engineering Hall, & Prospector Hall) are set to undergo renovations within the next few years, but until then, there are no working elevators in them.

Parking, Location, & Weather

Parking is enforced Monday - Friday from 7am to 5pm during the Spring & Fall semesters and a pass is required to park on campus. Contact our Business Office for questions or concerns on parking passes or tickets.

Spring & fall weather can be unpredictable and temperatures may drop or rise anywhere from 10 - 30 degrees depending on the day. Summers don't usually exceed 89° Farenheit (31° Celsius), but there are many sunny, cloudless days. Summer is also wildfire season, and the smoke can make breathing difficult, clog noses, and/or irritate eyes. Winters are long, dry, and cold, with temperatures sometimes in the negatives.
