A couple of quick tips to make the move-in process quicker for you:

  • Label everything (boxes, bags, etc.) with your last name, hall and room number.
  • Double check your housing assignment before you head to campus. You can do so by logging into the myHousing website and clicking the box that says “check my assignment”. If you have any questions or concerns you can call or email Housing Services at um.housing@maine.edu or at 207.581.4580.
  • Have your ID handy!  You will need this in order to get your MaineCard and check in!

If you have any questions, you can call the First-Year Center at 207.581.1420 or the Dean’s Suite at 207.581.1406. You can also email us with questions specifically about moving in at maine.hello@maine.edu.
