Welcome to UMaine!

Any time you are picking up your MaineCard you will always need to show a valid ID (driver license, government issued passport, or high school ID). We cannot accept a picture of an ID that may be on your phone or personal device.

Do you need a parking permit? Apply for parking permits online through the Parking Office!

Access, services, convenience and more

The MaineCard is the official University of Maine ID. Eligible and valid cardholders include full- or part-time students, faculty and staff. While you are associated with the University, the MaineCard is the only card you will need to access facilities, services and optional spending accounts while on campus! Optional spending accounts include Dining Funds and Black Bear Bucks.
