Housing and Residence Life

Residential Housing

on campus housing at Montana Technological University

Of all the memories you'll make in college, the most meaningful and long-lasting will include your friends. Many of those friendships will begin in your residence hall.

You'll meet students who share your interests and people with lives quite different from yours. Students from familiar places, and students from half a world away. You'll stay up late talking, study together, relax over a board game, play Frisbee on the lawn, and make friendships which will last a lifetime.

Residence Requirements

Freshmen under 21 years old are required to live on campus. (See our Residence Life Mission Statement for details and exceptions.) All other students are invited to live in a residence hall, as space permits.


Theme Communities

We have a variety of themed communities that fit many interests! If you have any questions on these floors, contact the Interim Director of Housing and Residence Life Nathan McQuinn at


This themed community brings together folks with shared interests around board games, video games, comics, anime, and anything else your imagination can create! The goal of this community is to establish a balance between real world responsibilities (academics, self-care, leadership development) and the virtual world. Possible programs include video game tournaments and board game nights. Open to all residents.


We are blessed to live in Montana – epic views, abundant trails, and outdoor adventures are available the entire year. The goal of this community is to engage students with the physical world we live in. Possible programs include hikes and skiing trips. The community is located next to the HPER where outdoor recreation equipment can be checked out. Open to all residents.


The School of Minds provides an atmosphere that further helps with reaching academic goals. In addition to extended quiet hours, the floor hosts a computer lab and enhanced study areas to aid in your academic success.


Residence hall life offers you opportunities to make the most of your college experience. Our residence life staff plan activities to get you acquainted with other students soon after you arrive, and activities continue all year long:

  • Trivia Night
  • Movie Nights
  • Outdoor Activities
  • Other Social and Educational Activities

Residence Hall Association

Do you want to have input into what goes on in your residence hall? When you arrive, talk to the RA of your floor about applying to sit on the Residence Hall Association Planning Board.
