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:

  1. Aged 21 or older
  2. A veteran or transfer student
  3. Living with a parent or legal guardian within easy commuting distance (35 miles)
  4. Exceptional circumstances that do not permit them to meet this requirement
