Students living in a University of Maine residence hall can also choose from a Living Learning Community or from themed communities.

New Living Learning Community

Maine Business School: Somerset Hall, third floor

The Maine Business School community is exclusively available to first-year business students. This experience will foster community with students pursuing the same degrees, have similar schedules, and create a sense of engagement for first-year students. Students in the Maine Business School Living Learning Community will be invited to participate in team-building activities that go above and beyond the traditional on-campus living experience. Students will engage with the MBS Advisory Board, MBS student organizations, faculty, and staff through book clubs, outdoor excursions, and social and professional networking.

New Themed Communities

Housing Services and Residence Life have worked together on some exciting new initiatives for the 2021–2022 academic year. For more details on themed communities, visit Res Life’s Themed Community page.

Mosaic: Kennebec Hall, third floor

The Mosaic community is an opportunity for first-year and upper-class students who identify as Black, Indigenous, students of color, or allied peoples. This community will focus on supporting BIPOC students during their enrollment at UMaine through partnerships with the Office for Diversity and Inclusion and other campus resources to tackle structural and interpersonal racism at the University. The community will facilitate mentoring opportunities, racial and ethnic identity development, and leadership skills for students through active anti-racism community initiatives. Staff selected for this residential community are committed to equity, social justice, and inclusion work in order to support students’ identities and programmatic needs.

Intramurals Community: Gannett Hall, second floor

The Intramurals Community is designed for students who are interested in participating in intramural sports. Residence Life will partner with Campus Recreation to provide opportunities for students to be part of intramural teams and other activities.

Gamers community: Cumberland Hall, fourth floor

The Gamers Community is designed for students who are interested in all types of games, including table-top games, video games, computer games, and role-playing games. Residence Life members will work to provide resources and space for a variety of gaming activities within the floor.
