Get to know our Portland campus with an informational presentation by an Admissions counselor followed by a 75-minute guided walking tour with a USM Ambassador — one of our student tour guides — on Tuesday, Thursdays and Fridays, starting at 1 pm. Our residence halls and Division III Athletics facilities are located on our Gorham campus but will be discussed on this tour.
The University of Southern Maine (USM) is offering a limited number of in-person, on-campus tours on our Portland campus by appointment only. You may bring a maximum of two guests with you, to help preserve the health and safety of our community. You and your two guests will be part of a group that will not exceed ten people. We also offer self-guided campus tours on our Portland campus.
The University of Maine System (UMS) requires the use of face coverings indoors for any visitor, faculty, staff, or student. We ask that you bring your own face covering and a water bottle. Water bottle refill stations are available and accessible on campus. Unacceptable face coverings include neck gaiters, bandanas, scarves, and masks with exhalation vents. If you would like to learn more about what to expect, we encourage you to read about what you can expect on our campus tours.
Meet your tour guides
Our USM Ambassadors will be your tour guides. Like our student body, these student ambassadors range from energetic first-year students to accomplished graduating seniors; from transfer students to working adults. These students bring with them their own unique stories, experiences, and skills to help you find yourself here. Learn more.
In the event of inclement weather, the University of Southern Maine may close, and scheduled events and tours may be canceled as a result.
