Montana State University – Northern (also known as MSU - Northern, or Northern) is a public state university, part of the Montana State University System, located in Havre, Montana. Montana State University – Northern was known as Northern Montana College prior to the restructuring of Montana's public university system. It has an operating budget for fiscal year 2007 of $12,540,000.[4] In 1913, the Montana State Legislature approved the establishment of the Northern Montana Agricultural and Manual Training School at Fort Assinniboine, six miles southwest of Havre, but no money was actually appropriated. The State Legislature amended their original act in 1927 to include certain academic subjects and in 1929, the Legislature appropriated funds to establish the college as a branch of the University of Montana (later renamed the Montana University System). Northern Montana College opened its doors in September 1929 in temporary quarters in Havre High School, and moved to its present campus in 1932.

In 1994, the Montana University System elected to realign its smaller campuses with the two main universities, University of Montana in Missoula and Montana State University in Bozeman. Northern Montana College was renamed Montana State University – Northern on June 1 of that year.

The men's athletic teams are nicknamed the Lights (as in Northern Lights) and the women's athletic teams are nicknamed the Skylights. They compete in the NAIA Frontier Conference.
