Family & Graduate Housing

Family & Graduate Housing Office
1502 West Garfield
Bozeman, MT 59715
(406) 994-3730

Family & Graduate Housing consists of 587 apartments located in eight apart­ment communities (Paisley Court, Brane­gan Court, West Julia Martin, McIntosh Court, Grant-Chamberlain Drive, Westside Houses, Peter Koch Tower and Nelson Story Towers). All units are within walking distance to campus facilities.

The Family & Graduate Housing Office (FGHO) sponsors events for children, non-student spouses, students, and the entire family.  Enjoy a variety of events such as barbecues and concerts throughout the summer, as well as a week’s worth of “welcoming” activities at the beginning of the academic year. Child care is available through the ASMSU Daycare Center (located near Fam­ily & Graduate Housing) during Summer Session as well as fall and spring semesters.  Children’s playgrounds are conveniently placed near each apartment community. A ­monthly newsletter is distributed to apprise tenants of upcoming Family & Graduate Housing events and pertinent seasonal information.


FGHO welcomes applications for both “summer only” and “year-round” qualified students.  A student may reside in Family & Graduate Housing with individuals whom the student has or shares a legal respon­sibility.  Examples of such relationships include, but are not limited to: married students, students with dependent chil­dren, students with dependent parent(s), and students with disabilities who require a live-in personal care attendant.

Single graduate students, second-degree undergraduates, and undergraduates who have earned more than seventy-two (72) credits, may choose to reside in one-bedroom apartments located in Peter Koch Tower and Nelson Story Towers. They may also choose to reside either alone or with a same-gender student roommate in Grant Chamberlain Drive.

At the time of occupancy, student applicants must provide documentation of their legal relationship to those persons resid­ing with the student. Such documenta­tion could include: a marriage license, children’s birth certificate(s), custody decree and/or letter of guardianship, or other documentation sufficient to establish a legal responsibility. Second-degree undergraduate students must provide a copy of their degree from an accredited four-year institution.  Individ­uals who are not accompanied by their legal dependent and are not a graduate, second-degree undergraduate or upperclassmen student with seventy-two (72) completed credits or more may be accommodated in the residence halls.

Credit Requirements

In order for a new student to be eligible for Family & Graduate Housing, undergraduate stu­dents must be registered for a minimum of nine credits; graduate students must be registered for a minimum of five cred­its.  Any change in student status must be immediately reported to FGHO.
