Student Life at USM provides a welcoming environment, support and advocacy for all students. Our staff works to foster a safe, respectful and inclusive campus community for YOU!

 

Whether you spend your time on the Gorham or Portland campus we serve as a gateway to co-curricular involvement, diversity and multicultural outreach, wellness education, leadership development, campus wide activities and University traditions.

The Portland Campus is the hub for the USM Commuter Community. If you are commuting to the Portland, you'll find community through programs, events and staff outreach. Look for activities happening in the Woodbury Campus Center as well as other locations around campus.

Gorham provides students with a residential experience. The Gorham Events Board (GEB) has events each week ranging from comedians and magicians, to stress relief nights and laser tag. The Brooks Student Center is the most happening place around; you don't miss out on an opportunity to check it out!
