Montana Hall Renovations

Construction has begun on a renovation project designed toMontana Hall photoimprove the overall safety, functionality and accessibility of historic Montana Hall.

When complete, the improvements will allow Americans with Disabilities Act-compliant access to all floors of the building thanks to the installation of a new elevator. Previously, only the basement level was accessible. Also, for the first time in the building's history, an ADA-compliant restroom will be available on each floor. The building's safety will be improved, as well, with a new fire-rated exit stairwell and a new fire hydrant placed near the building.

Work is expected to last into December 2018. If students with accessibility needs must visit our offices in Montana Hall call us directly at 406-994-4125 for alternate accomodations or the Office of Disability Serivces at 406-994-2824.
