Founded in 1893 as Montana's land grant college, MSU-Bozeman is a comprehensive, multipurpose university integrating programs of instruction, research, and public service. Our campus is located in the heart of the Gallatin Valley, a rich farm land of scenic grandeur in mountainous southwest Montana at an altitude of 5,000 feet and just 90 miles from Yellowstone National Park. (See Directions to Campus below,)

Southwestern Montana, with its network of rivers and streams and its mountain lakes, is a paradise for people who enjoy outdoor recreation. For a closer look at our spectacular location and the campus see the MSU Gallery . The campus covers 1,170 acres and includes about 60 buildings, which you can see on our campus map. The Department of Mathematical Sciences is located in Wilson Hall

Our nearest airport is Gallatin Field, located eight miles from Bozeman.  There is a Greyhound bus terminal located in Bozeman.

Annual precipitation in Bozeman is 18.61 inches, and much of it arrives as snow. We receive an annual average of 83.5 inches of snow in Bozeman and much more at the nearby ski areas.
