Historical NoteReturn to Top

On February 13, 1893, the Montana State Legislature passed "an act to establish, locate, maintain, and govern the University of the State of Montana" in Missoula. This "Charter Day" still receives an annual February celebration at the university with a reception and awards ceremony. The University of Montana 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." As of 2016, the University of Montana has four schools and six colleges that boast over 50 departments offering numerous undergraduate and graduate degree programs. The university also offers a full array of academic clubs, athletic teams, and campuswide events that attract students from all over the United States and the world.
