UP offers a unique experience to connect with fellow students in a way few other campuses can do.
Community building, sporting events, outdoor activities are just some of the ways you can fully envelope yourself in the campus community.
Located right near the Missouri river, UP’s campus offers students access to the wide range of outdoor adventures like skiing, hiking, biking, fishing and more.
Living with your peers is an essential part of your collegiate experience. Moving into our residents halls creates memorable living and learning experiences for students who come from communities beyond Great Falls.
If you are living away from home for the first time, it can be challenging. You are likely to experience the mixed emotions of excitement and anxiety. The aim of the Residential Life Staff is to make that transition from home to campus life as easy and as comfortable as possible for you. With the support of live-in Resident Directors and Resident Assistants, you’ll soon make university housing your new home.
We understand that students who live on campus come from many different backgrounds. This provides each of us the opportunity to learn and grow by building community with people who bring new and exciting things to the table. It is a wonderful experience to become life-long friends with diverse roommates or fellow residents in other buildings. Residential Life Staff strive to create communities that embrace unique individuals and all members of our university.
