Sawyer Student Housing
The Old Sawmill District is nothing short of a rebirth for 46 acres along the Clark Fork River, in the heart of Missoula, Montana. Once a booming sawmill complex, this property long known as the “mill site” has sat vacant since the early 1990s—unused and unsightly, but rich with history and potential. At The Sawyer Student Living, they hope to inspire University of Montana students in Missoula to find a new apartment, cut new pathways, and to connect the community. At the hub of the trail system, The Sawyer is located within walking distance of everything happening in downtown Missoula. Living in one of these apartments means being surrounded by a vibrant community. Sawyer is an off-campus 207 bed live-learn residence hall. Programmed to be an inclusive, dynamic learning community, the building includes apartment style dwelling units, integrated classrooms, flexible meeting and study spaces, social gathering spaces, and a cafe.
