Office of Residential Life

Rainbow Floor


The Rainbow Floor, the first of its kind at a Maine college or university, is for undergraduate and graduate students who wish to live together on a community floor seeking to celebrate and support the lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans*, queer, questioning, intersex and allied (LGBTQIA+) community at USM.

Residents engage in educational and social programming opportunities geared towards increasing knowledge and understanding of sexual orientation and gender identity and expression. Students may participate in training opportunities around creating safe spaces, addressing and reducing hate and bias language and incidents, and increasing community leadership opportunities.
