Montana State University is suggesting routes that will help students moving to   campus Aug. 20-22 to navigate traffic patterns changed for the move-in period.

MSU officials have notified all incoming freshmen with instructions for efficient alternate routes. A map to recommended routes is posted online. (link to pdf to come.)

MSU expects that more than 2,850 students will move in to university residence halls during the traditional three-day move-in period.

The largest number of students moving into MSU residence halls will be moving into the group of residence halls in the southwest corner of campus: North and South Hedges, Roskie, Freshmen Apartments and Hedges Suites, now called the Headwaters Complex. The university suggests that those students take the 19th Ave. exit (I-90 exit 305) from I-90 and proceed south to campus.  Signs will be posted on S. 19th advising students of the route to take to their particular residence. However, instructions are:

Students moving into the Freshmen Apartments may turn left on College Street and right (south) on S. 15th Avenue to access their residences.

Students moving into Roskie and Headwater Complex are asked to turn left on W. Lincoln Street where signs will direct them to their destination.

Students moving into North and South Hedges are asked to proceed south two blocks farther on S. 19th, to Kagy Boulevard. They are to turn left at the traffic light on Kagy Boulevard, then left again on S. 11th, and then left again on Grant Street.  Attendants will direct those arriving to where they may park to unload their belongings. South 12th Avenue in front of the Hedges complex will be one-way northbound between Grant and Garfield for the move-in period.

The university suggests that students moving into the Langford, Mullan, Colter, Pryor, Hapner and Hannon residence halls or the Quads, access campus either through the S. 7th Street exit from I-90 or the E. Main Street I-90 exit.

Those coming south on S. 7th Avenue (I-90 exit 306)  should turn left on Main Street and proceed to South Willson Avenue, where they should turn right, and then right again on Harrison Street. Students moving into Langford, Mullan, Colter and Pryor should proceed across 8th Avenue on Harrison St., which will be one-way westbound during the period.

Students moving into Hapner, Hannon and the Quads can turn left on 8th Avenue and then left on Cleveland to access those residence halls either from Cleveland Street or from S. 7th Avenue. Cleveland Street between 8th and 5th avenues will be one-way, eastbound.

Those accessing MSU by exiting on the E. Main exit (I-90 exit 309) should turn left at the light on Highland and right on Kagy Boulevard, then right on Willson to Harrison Street. Turn left.  Students moving into Langford, Mullan, Colter and Pryor should proceed across 8th Avenue and into parking lots near those residence halls.  Students moving into Hapner, Hannon and the Quads can turn left on 8th and then left on Cleveland to access those residence halls either from Cleveland Street or from S. 7th Avenue. Cleveland Street between 8th and 5th avenues will be one-way, eastbound.

Those streets with directional changes will be in effect from 8 a.m. through 6 p.m. Aug. 20-22.
