The University of Maine at Farmington offers a lively, vibrant residential college experience that extends beyond the classroom. Our friendly and safe campus provides a great place to learn and have fun.
The vast majority of our students live on campus or in apartments within a short walking distance to the college. You’ll meet new people, find new interests, have a lot of fun, and make new friendships that will last a lifetime.
As you might expect from a creative place like UMF, we’re home to a vibrant arts and culture scene that gives participants and observers alike a great opportunity to get involved. UMF, and indeed the greater Farmington area, is considered the cultural center of the region.
Campus Life 24 / 7 There’s More to College Than Classes
Students say there’s so much going on here they don’t want to go home on weekends because they don’t want to miss something. (It’s one of our best-kept secrets.)
UMF offers so many student clubs, organizations, sports and rec adventures, volunteer and leadership opportunities, off-campus trips and excursions, and student activities you’ll be plenty busy.
Location, Location, Location
Farmington is ideally situated at the gateway to world-class skiing and snowboarding, just off the Appalachian Trail, and smack in the middle of some of the best hiking, mountain biking, camping, skiing, snowboarding, rafting and kayaking in the entire northeast.
They’re so close, we consider the spectacular mountains, lakes and rivers – and everything they offer – to be a natural extension of our campus. And here, we take full advantage of the epic opportunities right in our backyard.
Ski & Snowboard — FREE
Thanks to a generous donation from Sunday River and Sugarloaf, all full-time UMF students get a FREE season pass to Farmington’s Titcomb Mountain, just 10 minutes from campus.
Always wanted to try skiing and snowboarding? Well, UMF students also get FREE learn-to-ski-and-ride lessons at Titcomb. Yes, FREE — taught by fellow UMF students in our Alpine Operations Certificate program.
Titcomb also offers nighttime Alpine skiing and snowboarding; miles of Nordic skiing trails (many lighted); a terrain park; a gi-normous new outdoor fire pit for Après-skiing / riding hanging out; a cool rustic main lodge with beautiful fieldstone fireplace and a cafeteria serving homemade treats, burgers, the best french fries ever and poutine.
If you’re into the outdoors, as many of our students are, then UMF is a perfect location to spend your college years.
Seriously, you’re going to like it here.
