The University of Maine at Machias works to provide a safe and comfortable environment where students live, study, socialize, learn and grow within a community of peers. Each student 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 Student Affairs staff is responsible for ensuring that the rights of residents and the property of the University are not abused. The following documents are provided to inform and educate students about their rights and responsibilities. The Student Affairs staff can assist with interpreting and understanding the responsibilities and expectations set forth in these documents if students have questions.
