About Montana State University Billings

Montana State University Billings has been an integral part of the Billings community and a student-centered learning environment since its early days as Eastern Montana College. Founded in 1927, the university continues to nurture a longstanding tradition of educational access, teaching excellence, civic engagement and community enhancement in an urban setting.  In the classroom and in the community, students receive a well-rounded unique education and training for Associate’s, Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees for careers through the University’s five colleges — arts and sciences, business, allied health professions, education and City College.

Campus information

Residents of Billings have a long track record of supporting the university through scholarships, internships and civic engagement. A regional retail, financial and medical hub, Billings offers vast array of job opportunities, personal connections and leadership opportunities via three campuses spread through the city.

Life on the main campus mirrors that of Billings: Students are happy to mingle on some of the 110 park-like acres at the base of the spectacular Rimrocks or take part in a variety of cultural, service, athletic or educational activities.

Whether a motivated honors student or first-generation attendee, all learners will find challenges that fulfill both individual goals and societal needs.

Campus Facilities:

  • Student Union Building - The Student Union provides meeting and conference rooms, and space for art exhibits. Within the Student Union there are multiple rooms that can be set up in a variety of ways to accommodate training classes, board meetings, luncheons, banquets and more.
  • City College - The City College can also provide excellent accommodations for events. The New Health Science Building is state of the art. The main purpose of this building is for academic use, so availability is dependent upon academic schedules.
  • Academic Buildings - Additional space for training and break out sessions may be available in our academic buildings including the Liberal Arts Building, Library, College of Education, College of Business, and Cisel Recital Hall. The main purpose of these buildings is for academic use, so availability is dependent upon academic schedules.

Set in the largest city in the state, Montana State University Billings and the community of Billings combine for a unique college experience: engaged and encouraging faculty; friendly people; a supportive community; and incredible educational opportunities.
