We’ve moved a few things! Access to University information is now streamlined through MyUSM, our secure, single sign-on portal.

MyUSM is your place to find University information and resources, such as:

  • Academic support and advising
  • Athletics
  • Campus Involvement Opportunities
  • Campus Safety
  • Health and Wellness support
  • Research resources
  • Student Services
  • Technology and Resources

You may find it helpful to take a video tour of the new MyUSM content.

What this changes:

  • You should sign into MyUSM, using your maine.edu credentials, to access University information, tools, and resources.

What hasn't changed:

  • Access to information on Brightspace and MaineStreet remains the same.
  • Our commitment to being student-focused every day remains. Offering the information and resources for our students in one secure location makes it even easier to provide you with support and services.

  • Administrative and HR Resources
  • Campus Safety
  • Faculty Course List
  • Involvement Opportunities
  • Professional Development Opportunities
  • Research resources
  • Student support resources
  • Technology and resources
