Maine Hello! - Information for New Students

Your first day at UMaine is August 29, 2014…and we can’t wait for you to arrive! 

We have an awesome schedule of events for your first weekend, so that you can learn all about campus and meet other students!

If you have any questions about the move-in process, Maine Hello, Welcome Weekend events, etc. please contact the First Year Center at 207-581-1420.

Move-in Process for First Year and Honors Residence Halls

Most incoming first-year students will be moving into one of the following residence halls: Oxford, Somerset, Knox, Cumberland, Gannett, Androscoggin, Colvin, Balentine, Penobscot or York.  In order to minimize traffic throughout the day we ask students moving into one of the halls listed above to arrive on campus in waves, by last name.  Please see below for your time slot.

Move-in Process for all Other Residence Halls

If you are a new or new transfer student who has been assigned to a hall other than those listed above, you may plan to arrive at any time during the day.

Getting ready?  Check out these tips!

Please refer to our list of what to bring and what not to bring before you start packing.

You will get more information about Maine Hello in early August in a large mailing from the university.  We will also post maps and other information here on our website later this summer.
