Apply for housing for Fall 2014 – New Transfer Students

Dear New Transfer Student,

Welcome to UMaine for Fall 2014! We invite you to apply for on-campus housing at this time. Transfer students are assigned to upperclass housing. You may request housing in the Transfer Living Community in Kennebec Hall on the online housing application; however, there is no guarantee of assignment to the TLC, as space is limited. For more information on the Transfer Living Community, please go to http://umaine.edu/sye/tsp/.

To apply for housing for Fall 2014, click the link below the signature line after reading this letter. It will take you to the login for the Fall 2014 housing application. You will log in using your MaineStreet logon and password. ** **Please be sure you have a phone number listed in the home phone number data field on MaineStreet. This is required before we can pull your information into the application database.
