As part of the First Year Experience at UMaine, we require all first-year students to live on campus for their full first year. Living on campus greatly increases students’ opportunities to get to know their peers, increases students’ access to faculty and staff, and it increases students’ access to clubs, organizations and campus events. Our data also shows that students who live on campus their first year have a higher semester and cumulative GPA and also are much more likely to return to UMaine for their second year!
Check out our sidebar for more information about our programs, services, staff members, living on campus or resources for first-year students.
If you are a first-year student in need of help feel free to stop into the First Year and Transfer Center, located on the ground floor of the 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
