Mission Statement

Living in a residence hall is a new experience for many students. Learning to live in a group situation requires cooperation, consideration and compromise. Most students find that the experience is ultimately valuable, enjoyable and formative. The mission of Residential Education is to enhance students’ academic experience by providing a broad spectrum of services. We encourage investment and involvement in a campus community that embraces diversity, promotes academic success and fosters personal growth — all while having fun.

Residence Hall Staff

The residence hall staff includes the Residence Life Coordinator and a team of Resident Assistants (RAs) who work to support the needs of the residential students. The Coordinator is a full-time professional staff member who lives in the residence hall and is responsible for overseeing the community within the hall and its day-to-day operations. The RAs are paraprofessional (student) staff members who are each assigned to a specific floor. They are a resource for their residents and maintain a vibrant and safe community within the residence hall.

Visit the Resident Assistant Program page for more information.

Residence Hall Application and Room & Board License

Our room and board application and contract has moved online! You can access the application once you have an University of Maine System account.

Please note that unless requested, all students will be placed in rooms without a roommate to promote community health and social distancing.

Students who apply on or before June 26, 2020 should receive their housing assignments to their university email accounts by Wednesday, July 1, 2020. Students who apply after that date will be assigned and notified in weekly batches thereafter until the week of move-in.

Tips:

  • Log in using the same credentials you use to log into MaineStreet (not your ID number, but the account name that is usually in a firstname.lastname format).
  • If the system does not allow you to log in, click the “add me” button and follow the directions there. Ensure that your MaineStreet ID number and your MaineStreet Login information are correct.
    • If you get an error it is either because at least one piece of information is accurate or you already have a valid account and it is not allowing you to make a duplicate account. If you already have an account, go back one step and try logging in again.
  • If you still cannot log in, try the following in order:
    • Use a private/incognito browser to access the application.
    • Use the UMS Account Password Change Tool
      • From your MyCampus account, select “UMS ID Management”, which is below the LaunchPad
      • Select “Change Password”
    • If you are still experiencing issues, please email ryan.michaud@maine.edu for assistance. We will respond within one to two business days. Please do not panic; there is plenty of space available.
  • If you would like a roommate and have one that you would like to request, please complete the requested information for that person in the indicated space on the application. If you do not want a roommate, please leave that information blank.
  • The default room type is for all incoming students is “Traditional Double as a Single”. To request an alternate room type (small single, large single) please indicate that in the text box near the end of the application that asks for any other information you would like to share.
    • Please note that currently there are limited options available outside of Traditional Double As a Single.
  • Meal plan choices can be changed up to ten days into each semester, so if you are not sure which plan you want yet, feel free to select one and decide later. The cost for both meal plans is the same.

Community Living & Student Conduct

We have designed the residential program at UMM to provide a safe and comfortable environment where students may live, study, socialize, learn and grow within a community of peers. Each resident is responsible for his/her own conduct and may live as he/she pleases as long as it does not interfere with the rights of others. The Residential Education staff is here to ensure that the rights of residents and the property of the university are not abused. The guidelines, expectations, and policies set forth in the Guide to Community Living have been established to ensure a safe and cooperative environment for all residents.
