Housing

Family housing, University Park, provided by  UMaine Housing Services is located near to campus and CNTSP partners with Places4Students to offer a listing of available apartments in nearby towns.

Nontraditional Students Association

The Nontraditional Students Association (NSA) is an organized student voice on campus for all non-traditional students, including students who are parents. NSA has annually sponsored family events such as Family Movie, Pizza, and family tickets for an athletic event.

Family Room/ Lactation Space

Thanks to the efforts of a group of parents on campus, a special room is located on the ground floor of Memorial Union and is available for the use of parents and their children. For moms who need to breastfeed or breast pump  while on campus, this is a quiet, comfortable, and private space. The Family Room is open from 8:00 AM- 4:30 PM. To access the Family Room at other times contact CNTSP at 581 1734  to make arrangements.
