Campus Tours

Whether you're a prospective undergraduate or graduate student, there's no better way to get to know our university than by taking a guided tour. Our welcoming staff is happy to answer all your questions about academic and student life at the University of Southern Maine (USM).

Daily information sessions and guided tours

Get to know our campuses 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. Our residence halls and Division III Athletics facilities are located on our Gorham campus but will be discussed on any tour.

Groups of more than five visitors should contact the Office of Admissions to request a group visit.

Gorham campus: Mondays and Wednesdays (9:30 AM), and select Saturdays (10:00 AM)
Portland campus: Tuesdays and Thursdays (9:30 AM)
Both Portland and Gorham campuses: Mondays (Gorham at 9:30 AM and Portland at 1:00 PM) and Fridays (Portland at 9:30 AM and Gorham at 1:00 PM)
