The Office of Residence Life is dedicated to assisting students in all facets of residential living and is committed to furthering the college students’ development outside the classroom. It is our priority to promote and foster growth in all areas of students' lives including social, emotional, physical, cultural, and ethical issues. The Office of Residence Life provides a safe, clean, and orderly environment in which students are enabled to develop and grow.
In accordance with Montana Tech residence hall requirements and Policy 502.1 of the Montana Board of Regents of Higher Education, all traditional, first-year students are required to live on-campus during their first year at Montana Tech. COT students are exempt from this policy. Exceptions to the live-in requirement may be requested by students who are married or are living with immediate family within a reasonable commuting distance from campus. Students requesting exemption from this policy must complete and submit an exemption form to the Montana Tech Office of Residence Life. Appeals to residence hall decisions may be brought before an appeals board. The decision of the campus body established to hear residence hall appeals shall be final.
