Policies & Regulations - First Year Residence Requirement

Living on campus maximizes students’ opportunities for social, cultural and extracurricular involvement and is positively linked to students’ persistence toward attaining a degree. Because the University of Maine (UMaine) believes that residence hall living is an educational opportunity that all new students should experience, living on campus is required for all newly admitted first-year students who are: aged 20 or younger; do not live within easy commuting distance (35 miles); and do not have exceptional circumstances that prevent this option.
