We offer personalized, guided campus tours and info sessions weekdays year round. Our In-Person Visits are on weekdays and select Saturdays.

UMF Visitor Policy

We’re committed to the safety of our visitors, students, faculty and staff and have adapted our on-campus visit experience for everyone’s protection. 

Currently, guests from the following states are permitted to visit campus without providing a negative COVID test:

  • Maine
  • New Hampshire
  • Vermont

If you are from a state other than ME, NH, or VT, you can contact the Admissions office directly to arrange an in-person visit according to the current guidelines.

The guidelines here reflect the Maine CDC and University of Maine System guidelines as of Nov 13, 2020. We will continue to follow recommendations by the Maine CDC and UMS to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and will update the list of permitted states as things change.

If you or any of your guests are from a state other than those listed, please make your visit a Live Virtual Visit or contact us below to arrange a virtual visit.


As a guest, you have an important role to play in safeguarding the health of our community members.

Mandatory Use of Face Coverings

The University requires everyone wear CDC-approved face coverings at all times — indoors and outdoors — while on campus. All guests are required to wear a CDC-approved face covering while visiting campus. All UMF students, faculty and staff are also required to wear them on all campus property and in all campus facilities. You’ll see this when you arrive.

Face coverings not approved: neck gaiters, respirators or face coverings with exhalation valve, bandanna-style coverings with an open bottom, face shields by themselves (without also wearing a cloth face covering). We also do not permit “creative” face coverings such as a brown paper bag, large plastic bottle, goalie mask, Halloween mask, etc. (Come on, now!)

Any guest who is feeling sick is expected to stay home and not come to campus. We also ask guests to please use hand sanitizer (stations are located across campus) and to frequently wash their hands while visiting.

The morning before you arrive
The morning before you’re scheduled to arrive on campus, please review the questions below. If you or any of your guests answer “yes” to any of these questions, we ask that you not come to campus that day and instead contact our Office of Admissions or use the button above to reschedule your visit.

  • If you are from Maine, have you been out of the state of Maine in the past 14 days?    *If yes, refer to state and local guidelines*
  • Have you been diagnosed with COVID-19 and not been cleared by a medical professional?
  • Have you been in contact with anyone who has been diagnosed with COVID-19 in the last 14 days?
  • Have you had or felt like you have had a fever in the last 24 hours?
  • Do you have a new or worsening cough?
  • Are you experiencing loss of taste or smell?

We’re all in this together and we’re here to help. Please contact us below with any questions or concerns you might have.
