Parking Permit & Maps

If you will have a car on-campus, you’ll need to obtain a parking permit. If you will only be on campus in the evenings or once a week, find out if obtaining a UMaine visitor pass is right for you. 

You’ll also need to know where to park on campus. Click here for a downloadable campus parking map.
