Residence Hall Descriptions - First Year Experience Residence Halls

First-year students are required to live on campus for their first full year at UMaine. For more information about our First Year Residence Requirement, please seeĀ Housing Services.

The University of Maine offers seven first-year residence halls as part of our First Year Experience. These residence halls are limited to new, incoming first-year students. By housing all first-year students together, we can provide additional support and guidance to these students as they transition from high school to college.

First-year students may apply to be part of one of our Living Learning Communities (LLCs) or can opt to be placed in general First Year housing. First-year students do not apply to live in specific residence halls. All housing assignments are made public to students on July 1st. For more information about our LLCs, please check out the link on the sidebar.

Our First Year Center is housed in the First Year area of campus, in Androscoggin Hall. This center is a go-to place for all first-year students and provides academic and social support to first-year students, as well as being a great resource to parents and families of new students.
