Maine's Public Universities - University of Maine System

Life the way it should be


Created in 1968 by the Maine State Legislature, the University of Maine System consists of seven public universities, each with a distinctive mission and character.

From Maine's largest city to its rural northern borders, our universities are known for excellence in teaching and research. Whether it’s a college of liberal arts, a hub of research and technology, a hands-on teaching environment or a distance education center, you’ll find a program that’s right for you and a college community that’s committed to your personal success.
