  • If you arrive after the scheduled pick-ups you will need to make arrangements to stay in South Portland at the Comfort Inn which is very close to the airport and offers a free shuttle service.Be sure to tell that that you are coming for a USM program so that you receive the discounted USM student rate of approximately $90-110 per night. Our office may also be able to assist you with finding another incoming student to share your hotel room in order to defray some of the cost. Please be sure to let us know if you would be interested in this option.
