Welcome to the College of our Hearts, Always
The University of Maine provides on-campus housing in 19 residence halls. Options include traditional undergraduate residence halls for first year and upperclass residents, suite style living for upperclass residents, graduate housing, and several living/learning lifestyle options. All halls remain open for Fall Break and Thanksgiving Break.
Fall Room Assignments
Room assignments are available now! Log in to myHousing on or after July 1 to see your room assignment information.
If at that time you do not see the “My Room Assignment” button, it means that you have not been assigned a room yet. Students must submit a housing application before being assigned a room.
Check-in for first year and transfer students will be on Friday, August 30, 2019. Check-in for returning students will be on Monday, September 2. Classes begin on Tuesday, September 3.
Fall 2019 Housing Application
The Fall 2019 housing application for accepted incoming students and off-campus students returning to on-campus housing is now available.
Current residents who did not participate in Room Signup may apply for housing and be assigned by the Housing Office.
First Year Residence Requirement
Living on campus maximizes students’ opportunities for social, cultural and extracurricular involvement and is positively linked to students’ persistence toward attaining a degree. The University of Maine believes that residence hall living is an educational opportunity that all new students should experience.
Living on campus is not required for a new admitted first-year student under any of the following criteria:
- Aged 21 or older
- A veteran or transfer student
- Living with a parent or legal guardian within easy commuting distance (35 miles)
- Exceptional circumstances that do not permit them to meet this requirement
