Life On Campus

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.


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:

  • Bowling
  • Movie nights
  • Casino Night
  • 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 or talk to the Director of Residence Life about applying to sit on the Residence Hall Association Planning Board.

Message From the Director

Welcome to Residence Life at Montana Tech. We are here to support and enhance your college experience through programs designed to engaged and build connections on campus and in the residence halls. National studies have shown students who live on campus not only tend to be more engaged and connected, but also do better academically and have a higher retention rate in college. Please contact us if you have any questions!

Thank you,  

Scott Forthofer

Director of Residence Life
