January 16, 2013View for printing

The city of Missoula and the University of Montana are moving forward on their search for a developer to create hundreds of new student housing units, and they hope to have a deal in place soon.

Missoula Mayor John Engen and UM President Royce Engstrom agreed in December to a new quality of life initiative that, among other things, will address the city's shortage of student housing.
