The University Center welcomes any group or organization to utilize its facilities. We believe that the use of our facilities for meetings and events provides increased opportunities for learning and entertainment as well as cultural and social enrichment for the community.
The University Center offers your group the atmosphere of an academic setting with all of the amenities of a full-service convention center with our unique conference and event facilities, catering services, technology, and professional staff.
Planning and scheduling ahead of time is the key to a successful event. To make it easier, we created a planning checklist for you.
Our staff members are experienced in assisting with the coordination and planning of an array of events, conferences, and special occasions. As service providers, we are dedicated to providing exceptional customer service and work to deliver quality facilities, equipment, and services. We offer year-round meeting rooms and event facilities. We schedule our rooms on a first-come-first-serve basis. However, a few annual campus events such as Homecoming, New Student Orientation and Commencement take precedence.

The UC is available for departments to use for a variety of events including staff meetings, trainings and conferences. For departmental business and events, i.e., staff meetings, staff training, and staff receptions, facility rental fees are offset by the President’s Office. The department may be responsible for set-up and tear-down fees if applicable. We welcome departments to utilize our conference facilities for other uses; however, such uses will be charged at the departmental discounted billing rate. You will find that our rates are very competitive within the Missoula community and our technology and service far superior.
