Each of our three welcoming and supportive campuses at the University of Southern Maine (USM) is unique, yet all share the extensive resources of the university and our dynamic communities. With easy access to all Maine has to offer, from the city to the countryside, USM campuses offer the best of both worlds.

Events, Activities, and Fun on Campus and in the Community

From sporting events to performing arts, social action to international celebrations, there is always something happening on our campuses and in our surrounding communities. Friday art walks, outdoor concerts, food festivals, fundraising challenges, and speaker series are just a few of the events that engage students, faculty, and alumni throughout the year.

Campuses Rich in Resources

USM campuses are home to state-of-the-art libraries and labs, art galleries and performance venues, student support centers, fitness and athletic facilities, and more. You'll have easy access to the extensive resources of Maine's largest metropolitan region, including the rich arts, cultural, social, health, civic, and economic resources of Greater Portland.

The METRO Husky Line

Campus Transit on the METRO Husky Line

USM students commute easily between the Portland and Gorham campuses via the WiFi-enabled METRO Husky Line — complete with USB charging ports! The new fleet of natural gas buses make frequent stops on campus 7 days per week, plus stops in downtown Portland and Westbrook. An added bonus: students ride for free on all METRO lines, so you can get to your internship, work, the mall, and more!
