The University of Maine at Farmington Office of Conferences and Events is your one-stop shop for all your event planning needs. We can comfortably accommodate groups of any size, for any length of time — from a singe-evening event to a month-long retreat.

Our beautiful campus, on-site dining and catering services; overnight accommodations; and our location in Maine’s spectacular western mountains region make the University of Maine at Farmington an ideal place to hold your next reception, meeting, workshop, summertime overnight / multi-night gathering, and more.

UMF offers extensive hi-tech presentation capabilities, an on-campus Fitness & Rec Center, award-winning dining and catering service, on-site athletic fields, art galleries and performance centers, a library, large lecture halls, small conference rooms, loads of convenient and free parking, overnight residence halls accommodations in the summertime, and more.

The campus is conveniently located just a short walk from vibrant downtown Farmington, with restaurants, a movie theater, banks and shopping. Access to pristine lakes and rivers, spectacular hiking, canoeing, skiing, snowmobiling, golfing and more — are just minutes from campus.

Book Your Next Function at UMF — Available Year-Round

The UMF Conferences and Events Office is open for business, year-round. While UMF classes are in session (September to May)  we regularly coordinate and book a wide range of functions: large and small, simple to complex, for all kinds of businesses, organizations, churches and groups.

From May to September (while most of our students have cleared out for summer break) UMF Conferences and Events shifts into even higher gear — hosting functions for organizations from New York City to New Sharon, Maine. Many summertime functions include overnight stays while our seven residence halls are vacated.

Whether it’s a formal conference that requires award-winning banquet facilities for a white linen catered setting; multi-media presentation facilities and seating for 250; or maybe something smaller, we can do it for you — and at an affordable price.
