MISSOULA – For the first time ever, the University of Montana will offer discounted residence hall rooms for students enrolled in at least six credits during summer semester.
The new initiative offers an affordable option for students who want to stay in Missoula and take summer courses at UM. Students can live in Jesse Hall for a flat rate of $300 for a shared room or $450 for a single room for the summer term. Space is limited so students are encouraged to submit a Summer Housing Application as soon as possible.
Students must complete six credits over the summer to qualify for the discount. Those who do not complete and pay for the minimum six-semester credit requirement will no longer qualify for the flat rate and they will be assessed a higher nightly room rate.
Students enrolled in courses ending Friday, Aug. 16, will be required to vacate Jesse Hall by 9 a.m. that day. Students taking classes that end prior to Aug. 16 will be required to vacate their summer rooms by Saturday, Aug. 10.
Summer courses can shorten time to graduation and offer students the chance to take advantage of unique experiential learning opportunities and to learn in accelerated course formats. In 2018, summer enrollment was the highest at UM since 2014, with nearly 3,000 students taking classes.
