Welcome to Housing Services
FALL 2013 ROOM ASSIGNMENTS
Students with a fall room assignment may view room assignments/roommate contact information by logging in to myHousing (at right) with a MaineStreet logon and password and clicking on the “check my assignment” button. If the button is not visible when logging in, it means a room has not yet been assigned. As the assignment process is ongoing, students who have not yet been assigned are advised to check again every few days. On-campus housing is not guaranteed for returning students or for incoming first-year and transfer students who have not confirmed admission by May 1, 2013.
Roommate and room change requests are not accepted at this time due to space limitations.
HOUSING APPLICATIONS FOR FALL/CONFIRMED ADMISSION
For incoming first-year and transfer students: If your admission was confirmed after May 1, we are unable to guarantee housing regardless of when a housing application was submitted. We will assign applications received from first-year students who confirmed admission by May 1.
RETURNING STUDENTS – HOUSING AVAILABILITY
All upperclass housing has been assigned. If you are a returning student who submitted a housing application and do not currently have a room assignment, we will be unable to accommodate your request for housing. Please go to www.umaine.edu/cntsp for information on off-campus housing availability.
ROOM/BOARD CANCELLATION FEES
Due to a shortage of on-campus housing, cancellation fees are suspended until further notice.
If you have a question regarding on-campus housing at UMaine, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org for a faster response during business hours. We may not be able to get back to you by phone in the same day due to a high volume of phone traffic. Thank you!
