International Student Information
Helpful Information for International Students
The Office of International Programs helped us compile this one-page overview of room and board options for our international students. Here, you will find links to all pertinent information regarding room and board at UMaine.
Note: When booking your flight, please be aware that UMaine residence halls close on the last day of finals each semester. International students can request permission to stay one extra day. If staying in the U.S. after your exchange semester (up to 30 days after your last exam), you will need to arrange for alternative housing.
