Why FGH?


Welcoming & Quiet

A great place to call home, Family & Graduate Housing is conveniently located on the outskirts of campus, allowing tenants to feel connected while also providing a quiet community atmosphere. Our community is large enough to afford many opportunities to connect with individuals from all backgrounds, yet small enough to feel welcome and supported.

24-Hour Staff Availability

We take care of you morning, noon, and night! When our main office is closed, our on-call team is available to help you with everything from checking in for the first time, checking out spare keys because you locked yourself out, assessing maintenance issues, and more.

Reasonable Rates & Month-to-Month Contracts

We offer affordable rates that make it easier to focus on academics than your rent payment. Furnished apartments are available for a low monthly fee, and the grounds and maintenance of your unit is taken care of by MSU employees. When you’re ready to move out, you’re not locked into a yearly contract.

Diverse Community

38% of MSU’s international student population lives in Family & Graduate Housing. We house tenants from Montana and many from out-of-state. We welcome veterans, single parents, undergraduate students, graduate students, non-traditional students, etc.

Year-Round Events

We host a minimum of six all-community events each year varying from holiday events to fun in the sun. Each neighborhood Community Assistant also holds monthly activities for you to meet some of the other tenants living in your neighborhood!

You Belong Here

Our staff looks forward to serving you through your Bobcat journey. We can’t wait to welcome you to our thriving community!

“The mountains were calling and I had to move here! The exceptional faculty/staff and programs on campus were a happy addition!  The FGH staff members make the transition into housing easy which allows you to feel settled, faster. MSU has so many programs, offerings and activities. There is something for everyone and there is always something new to try, see or do. You can't beat living in Bozeman and you can't beat being a Bobcat!”

“I chose MSU mainly because my focus was core research and MSU ranks in the top-tier of US research institutes.  I primarily like FGH because the staff is friendly and always ready to help. Additionally, it’s good to have an event every month which provides a great refreshment from the daily schedule. Being an International student, I didn't know anything about housing here in the U.S. so FGH made it easy for me. I have always loved living in FGH because it’s so safe. Also, the CAs make sure the community is quiet, which helps with late night and early morning studies.”

“It’s easy to study in FGH due to the quieter environment and there is quick access to outdoor space when you need a break, which is refreshing. I love attending different events that FGH hosts and I love meeting people from different cultures and nationalities.”

“We had the opportunity to meet many incredible people from around the world, allowing us the privilege to learn more about their cultures. Living in Family & Graduate Housing is a must for those who value community, wise economic decisions, minimizing stress, and maximizing family time.”

“I chose MSU because of my advisor and one of my friends who studied here before. Montana State University is a university with high standards, exceptional professors, labs, equipment, and staff. At MSU, you have incredible opportunities to join a research team to perform research and gain knowledge which in my opinion it is invaluable. I really like living in F&GH because it is a safe place to live - full of green areas, playgrounds, and trails where my son can play with friends and neighbors. I enjoy the activities that FGH organizes to make everybody feel welcome and part of a community especially when you are so far away from your own family and old friends.”
