Transfer Student Information

Congratulations on your transfer acceptance to the University of Maine! We hope you will consider campus living. Living on campus maximizes opportunities for social, cultural and extracurricular involvement and is positively linked to students’ persistence toward attaining a degree, and can help transfer students become acclimated to the area much more quickly. The University does not require transfer students to live on campus.
