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.

International students must contact the Office of International Programs for information on break housing for the academic year 2020–2021.

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.
