Residence Hall Information and Rates

Please read the below information before attempting to apply for housing.
  • Will I have a roommate?
    • Yes, it is likely that incoming students will be assigned a roommate. We have a limited number of single rooms, so they are available on a first come, first serve basis.
    • Medical singles are available. Please contact Student Accessibility Services (207-581-2319 and um.sas@maine.edu) for more information.
  • When will I find out my room assignment?
    • Residence life staff completes room assignments on a rolling basis for housing. You can check your placement at anytime by selecting, “I would like to check my housing assignment for the fall.” Please note that housing assignments are likely to change until move-in day.

We have plenty of space on campus, so please do not worry.

  • What type of room will I live in?
    • The default room type for all incoming students for Fall 2022 is “Traditional Double”. To request an alternate room type (small single, large single) please indicate that in the free text box near the end of the application.
  • I have a documented need for medical accommodations, how can I make a request for those accommodations?
    • All requests for medical accommodations must go through Student Accessibility Services at ummdisability@maine.edu. You MUST have documentation from a licensed professional outlining the specific reason for accommodation as well as recommendations for accommodation.
    • Depending on the accommodations, the assignment possibilities may be limited to a specific room, floor, wing, or building.

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.

Residence Hall Staff

The residence hall staff includes the Director of Student Life, 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.
