Community Services

The Office of Community Services enhances the academic mission of the University of Maine at Machias by building successful community/University partnerships; by providing facilities and services to on- and off-campus individuals and groups; and by offering non-credit workshops and courses to the communities it serves.

Past and present events include conferences, seminars, trainings, workshops, concerts, plays, children’s camps, summer wedding receptions, and more.

Facilities include state-of-the-art classrooms, computer labs, lecture halls, a 355-seat theatre, a large gym, an olympic-size pool, fitness area, outdoor areas, seminar and conference rooms.

Comments from past event coordinators include:

  • "The dining staff went far beyond anything they might have been expected to do. Great people!"
  • "The facility was top notch."
  • "We appreciated how friendly the coordinators were in assisting us plan such an important celebration for over 150 guests. It’s nice to see an organization take pride in their services and seeing that each request was completed as suggested. The University has a wonderful setup and has the advantage of being the only banquet hall in the Down East area with every service – location, seating, catering, bar service, cleaning, etc. I would recommend the University to any prospective clients/organizations."
