Living on Campus
Looking for the real college experience? The University of Maine at Machias has two residence halls, Dorward Hall and Sennett Hall, that provide excellent accommodations for students who wish to live on campus.
The residence halls are convenient, safe places to live, well supervised by university staff. There is a full time, live-in professional Resident Director in each building that supervises a staff of resident assistants. Each floor also has a Student Resident Assistant to assist students in a variety of ways. You also have the opportunity to get involved with your residence hall by becoming a member of the Dorward or Sennett Hall Council, made up of floor representatives and an executive board who serve to facilitate communication within the hall and are responsible for governing the residence halls.
Each residence hall has a security access swipe card system for safety and convenience. This allows you access to the front doors and rooms of the residence halls plus the 24-hour reading room.
Rooms are equipped with single beds, 36'x 80' mattresses, desks, dressers, wardrobes, mirrors, chairs, bookcases, and draperies. Each residence hall also has a laundry room with card and coin operated washers and dryers, lounges with color televisions, fireplaces, as well as recreation rooms and small kitchens.
Each room is wired with two internet jacks. Instructions for connecting to the RESNET campus network are issued by the Residence Life Staff when you move in. Each room also has two phone jacks, so you will have your own personal phone number and voicemail. Just bring a phone set and a pre-paid calling card for long distance phone calls. Your phone number will be issued after you move in. New this year: cable is included in your room and board costs!
Want to live in the residence halls and earn some extra money, too? Each building has front desk workers on duty at night to monitor guests and distribute packages. If you are interested in being a front desk worker, pick up an application from the Resident Director.
Living on campus opens you to a world of opportunities, right at your doorstep. You'll have great access to all campus resources by living in the center of it all. For more information contact the Student Life Office at (207) 255-1305 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
