Prospective Students

Founded in 1865, the University of Maine is the land-grant university and sea-grant college of the state of Maine. Located on an 1,100 acre campus adjoining the town of Orono, it is nine miles from Bangor, Maine's third largest city. To learn more about Maine, you could view the Visit Maine! or the homepage.

The largest in the state-wide University system, the Orono campus is dynamic and cultural. Enjoying a classic New England setting, the campus offers easy access to both Maine's urban and rural areas. UMaine hosts over 500 students from 70 foreign countries and most American states; nearly 20% of the total enrollment regularly is admitted from other states and nations. Culturally, Orono should appeal to every taste. Guest speakers provide insight into current political, social, and scientific thought. Special programs in the arts abound, including theatre productions, musical offerings, and art exhibits. Intercollegiate athletic events occur throughout the academic year.
