Dress Comfortably: It is recommended that you wear casual clothes for move in and moving around campus throughout the day. Wear comfortable shoes so the walking does not wear out your feet. Please feel free to let us know of any special accommodations you may need.

Have Fun: Whether you are a new student or the family member or guest of a new student, enjoy the start of this adventure at the University of Maine at Machias!

Inclement Weather: If inclement weather is expected, please check the UMaine Machias homepage for campus closure notification.
