Historical NoteReturn to Top

The University of Montana in Missoula first opened for classes in 1895, moving to its current location at the base of Mount Sentinel in 1899. Initially called the University of Montana, the university went through several name changes. With the establishment of the Montana University System in 1913, it became the State University of Montana. The name changed again in 1935 to Montana State University. In 1965, the institution again became the University of Montana as decreed by state legislation that renamed five of the state's colleges to "more accurately describe the schools' respective functions."
