MISSOULA — After University of Montana students were asked to vacate the dorms, a local storage unit, owned by alumni, is offering a storage solution.

Eagle Self Storage, off Highway 93, is offering free storage units to students.

The owner, Bob McCue, said the units are usually empty until summer time anyway, so offering them to his alma mater was a no-brainer.

McCue said 30 students have already taken advantage of the offer, and he expects that to increase to 50-70.
