Life at the University of Maine at Farmington aims to inspire the growth of our students by providing leadership opportunities and encouraging student involvement in the local community. Students can join a club, take a trip to Boston, see a Broadway play, participate in community service, support UMF visual arts, hang out in the Landing, or get involved with student government. Although the opportunities are limitless, the choice is yours on how you want to make UMF a comfortable place to live and engage in academics in a welcoming community.
Experience Living on Campus at UMF!
UMF students are active and engaged seven days a week on campus and in the greater Farmington community. You can get involved in over 50 clubs and organizations, compete in varsity, club or intramural sports, and volunteer in the community. You may choose to perform in theater, dance, improvisational comedy, or as a member of one of our voice or instrumental music groups. Many Farmington students enjoy creating their own art, music, film, or writing. Programs and activities in the Landing or in the residence halls can be fun, informative and provide a great opportunity for you to get to know other UMF students, faculty and staff members.
One of the greatest experiences of attending college is living on campus. At Farmington, typically 95 % of our first-year students, and more than half of all students, live in the residence halls. Nervous about being alone in a new place? Don’t worry. Living in a residence hall is a great way to connect with other students and our highly trained staff is here to support your transition.
Residence Life at UMF
Each of our nine different residence halls is home to 80-140 students. UMF is home to a healthy living hall, Stone Hall; a scholar area, Scott West; a certified green hall with a suite-style layout, Frances Allen Black Hall, and a cooperative living hall, Lockwood. Other options include themed halls such as Purington or Mallett. Themed communities are made up of students who have similar interests such as sustainable living, visual and performing arts, outdoor recreation, or education.
To learn more about each of the halls and the various themes and qualities that make up our campus, see the Complete Residence Hall List.
