Residential Communities

In addition to traditional residence hall housing, USM offers Residential Communities, which are dynamic floors designed to promote academics and interest based themes through programs and activities. In addition to the programmatic and service benefits of residential life, students on these floors enjoy theme-oriented social, recreational and educational programs, interact with faculty and staff specializing in the theme area, connect with related student organizations and meet peers who share similar interests.
