Our Commitment

Per the Office of Civil Rights (OCR) Compliance Review #15-13-6001, accessibility is defined as when "a person with a disability is afforded the opportunity to acquire the same information, engage in the same interactions, and enjoy the same services as a person without a disability in an equally effective and equally integrated manner, with substantially equivalent ease of use. The person with a disability must be able to obtain the information as fully, equally and independently as a person without a disability."

Montana Tech strives to provide equal access to university courses, programs, and activities for our students, staff, faculty, and visitors in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act.

Physical Access

Anyone coming to campus should know that Butte sits at a very high altitude. There is a risk of altitude sickness or shortness of breath until you have acclimated to the climate. Our campus is situated on several hills, so those with mobility issues should take necessary precautions. Winters are long, dry, and cold, with temperatures sometimes in the negatives. 

There are buildings on campus that are over 100 years old and were not built with accessibility in mind. We do our best to accommodate students while preserving historic integrity. Three of our buildings, Main Hall, Engineering Hall, and Prospector Hall, are set to undergo much needed renovations within the next few years. but until then, there are currently no working elevators in those buildings, so please plan accordingly.
