BOZEMAN — Montana State University students will soon be heading back to class and while it’s their responsibility to have certain school supplies like pencils and books, MSU is making sure each student has access to a Clean Cat Kit.
“What’s in this kit is a bottle of hand sanitizer, a bottle of disinfectant spray, some microfiber wipes, a face mask,” explained MSU spokesman Mike Becker.

The university hopes to enable students to take control over their own, personal spaces with the Clean Cat Kits.
“We want to make sure that everybody who comes to our campus as a student, staff, and faculty member has some ability to take some personal responsibility for the spaces that they use every day," Becker said. "They can put a little extra effort in to make sure that in addition to all the other cleaning on-campus that that space right there, right then is sanitized."
There are several refilling stations students can find all over campus in case they run out of sanitizer or spray.
Volunteers spent hours putting the kits together, but it’s a little way the university can provide reassurance.
“This is an opportunity that we saw to put some of this peace of mind right into people’s hands so that they can know what they’re touching is under their control and they can have that extra satisfaction of knowing that it’s clean, their hands are sanitized, and that it’s all ready to go for their school or for their work,” Becker explained.
Classes at MSU officially start on Monday, Aug. 17.
