Welcome to the University of Maine at Farmington.

You’ll love it here, as I and so many others do.

Let us count the ways: the creative energy and devotion of our students, the excellence and  dedication of our faculty and staff, the positive impact and value of our strong and longstanding  relations with community partners, the friendliness of our campus, the height of our expectations, the breadth of our possibility.

If you are looking for a small, public liberal arts college with award-winning teacher education, small classes, residential options, a community service ethic, individual mentoring by faculty, abundant opportunities for internships, undergraduate research, innovative community projects, distinctive courses of study, richly melded curricular, co-curricular, and extra-curricular pursuits, Division III athletics, unparalleled year-round outdoor opportunities — including black flies and mud in spring! — and a truly open, diverse, lively, caring, productive, and spirited campus community, think UMF.

Experience Farmington. View this website, visit campus, and talk to our current students, faculty, staff, and one or more of the 14,000 alumni and supporters of this gem of a place. Year after year, we remain delighted and gratified by their high regard for UMF and we are equally delighted and gratified by your interest.
