The University of Maine at Farmington inspires the social and intellectual growth of our students by providing leadership opportunities and encouraging student involvement across the residential campus and local community.
First-year students are required to live on campus, joining more than half of their student peers. Students can participate in our signature Mainely Outdoors program, join a club, take a trip to Boston, see a Broadway play, participate in community service, travel abroad, attend games and performances, socialize in the Beaver Lodge, or shape policy through participating in student government. UMF is a comfortable, safe, and active community in which our students live, learn, and engage, with each other and the world around them.
UMF’s Partnership for Civic Advancement supports student engagement in community-based activities in western Maine and beyond that are designed to be mutually beneficial to our students, our community partners, and the communities served. Our internship, student teaching, and practicum programs provide students with over 450 experiential learning opportunities annually.
At Farmington, students feel connected and deeply woven into the roots of our community. Students easily engage and succeed in a place where they are valued, inspired and empowered. With 1800 students, Farmington is poised for personal interactions with faculty, staff, fellow classmates and the greater community. Opportunities for cross-campus engagement and networking beyond campus are built on UMF’s ability to foster relationships on many levels. Farmington boasts a diverse, active campus where students can broaden world views and experiences — and where outcomes rival those of peer institutions.
