Map & Directions


The Carroll Campus is located just a few blocks from downtown Helena in the center of Helena. We are just one block from a golf course and a shopping area, about 20 minutes to Canyon Ferry Lake, 30 minutes to the nearest campground and 35 minutes to a chairlift heading up a mountain for a great day of skiing.

Getting to Helena

Glad you are planning to visit Carroll - we look forward to seeing you on campus! Nestled in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, Helena can be reached by plane, train or automobile!

The Helena Regional Airport is about a 10 minute drive across town from campus. Delta Air Lines, United Airlines, and Alaska Airlines fly into Helena. Connecting flights from Minneapolis/St. Paul, Salt Lake City, Denver, and Seattle are most common for travelers flying in and out of Helena.

We are about a hour and a half drive from Missoula, Great Falls, Butte and Bozeman, which all also have airports. The airport codes for the airports in the area are:

  • Helena - HLN
  • Bozeman - BZN
  • Butte - BTM
  • Great Falls - GTF
  • Missoula - MSO

Travel to Helena by train is a bit trickier. Amtrak's 'Empire Builder' passenger service's nearest stops are 4 hours by car to either Shelby, MT or Havre, MT. This has been an option for current Carroll students in the past as they catch a ride to the station with friends from the area.

From any direction it is a scenic drive to Helena, Montana! Whether you are coming from the east, driving towards the Rocky Mountains, or coming over some mountain passes to get here - it is beautiful.
