Residence Life at The University of Maine

Our Mission: The Department of Residence Life provides a residential experience that supports the academic and personal development of residential students. 

In Residence Life, we believe that what students experience outside the traditional classroom is just as important to their education as what’s learned through coursework. We see the residence halls as our classroom, and offer a vibrant and engaging curriculum for our residential students that focuses on developing the individual, creating a sense of belonging, and supporting the academic mission of The University.

We also see the residence halls as home – yours and ours! Not only do our 100+ staff members work in the residence halls, we also live in the residence halls in order to provide consistent support to our residential students 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Our goal is to build and maintain safe, inclusive, and welcoming communities that we are all proud to call home.

Our Home is Your Home.
