Here at UMaine we know that the first year of college can be difficult for many students. Whether you struggle with time management, navigating the university campus, making friends, or getting involved, we are here to help!  Our staff provides an additional layer of support for first-year students by helping to “fill the gaps” here at the university, thus making it easier for our students to find the resources and assistance that they need in order to be successful.

If you are a first-year student in need of help feel free to stop into the First-Year and Transfer Center, located in room 150 Memorial Union.  You can also call us to set up an appointment by calling 581-1420.

If you are a parent, faculty or staff member and you have a concern about a first-year student, please call the First-Year and Transfer Center at 581-1420 or e-mail us at
