Residence Questionnaire

Do you plan to live on campus? If so, you will need to complete a Residence Hall Questionnaire & Dining Hall Contract. The information we gather helps us better assess and meet your housing needs.

First-Year Residence

First-year students must live on campus as an educational opportunity all new students should experience. You must submit a First-Year Residence Exemption Request Form if you need an exemption to this requirement.

What to Bring

Your first time living on a college campus can be confusing when deciding what to bring with you. This guide to moving on campus helps you know what you can take with you, what isn’t allowed, and recommended items to have with you when moving into your residence hall.

A Pet-Friendly Campus

UMFK is a pet-friendly campus, and our students can have a pet live with them in Crocker Hall! You could have a cat, bird, hamster, gerbil, or even hermit crab(s) as a pet. UMFK is currently the only college or university in Maine to offer this opportunity to students.

If you are interested in this opportunity, you can find more information under the Residence Life section of the UMFK portal.
