University of Montana

Book A Stay Near Campus

Once called "the most scenic campus in America" by Rolling Stone, The University of Montana is a focal point of life near our Missoula, MT hotel. This renowned public research university, founded in 1893, has its beautiful main campus  at the foot of Mount Sentinel, unmissable thanks to its giant "M" brand on the side.

With 64 buildings, as well as its own restaurants, medical facilities, banking, postal services, police department, and ZIP code, the University campus is like a city of its own. A tour offers endless opportunities for experiencing campus life. Walk its length, and discover its academic history, such as its record-setting number of Rhodes Scholars or the earliest authorized edition of the Lewis and Clark journals. For a look at the school's athletics, there's the 26,500-seat Washington–Grizzly Stadium and the Adams Center, a 7,500-seat multi-purpose arena.

In addition to its research centers, and institutes, the University of Montana comprises six colleges and three independent schools, including the renowned Phyllis J. Washington College of Education and Human Sciences and College of Forestry and Conservation. 

When you stay at Red Lion Inn & Suites Missoula, you're just a five minute drive, or a brief walk along the riverfront, away from the University of Montana. Reserve a stay near campus and downtown Missoula.
