Virtual Communities are residential communities that communicate primarily through online means. These communities are interest-based and not assigned to any one area of campus.  In some cases, these communities will collaborate on projects and find ways to stay connected outside of the classroom.  All virtual communities are based through Discord, though each community may vary.  

Our Virtual Communities are: Procraftination (arts and crafts), Chillin’ in the Kitchen (cooking and baking), Book Club, Music Maniacs (music and podcasts), Travel Talk (about traveling), Bearfit (fitness), Film Fanatics (film and TV), and Stress a ‘Lil Less (cultivating calm and stress management).

All students interested in joining one of the Virtual Communities should reach out to Jessica Chubbuck, Assistant Director of Residence Life at 207.581.6105 or by emailing um.reslife@maine.edu.
