Assignment confirmation and balance due amount will be e-mailed to you. Any past due balance on a University account must be cleared before an assignment is made.

Payment in full is due prior to moving into the residence hall if your stay is less than the full summer session.

A three-payment plan option, with an enrollment deadline of May 15, 2019, may be available for those USM students planning to live in housing for the full summer. Contact Student Financial Services at 207-780-5200 to set up this payment plan or to discuss your payment plan options if you are assigned to housing after May 15th.  

The details on the optional gap stay:

Full summer USM students staying from Sunday, May 12 - Friday, August 23, who have a fall 2019 room assignment at USM and are registered for fall classes, may move into their fall room assignment at the end of summer session and stay through the gap period between the end of summer term and the start of fall term at no additional charge.

Other USM summer students wishing to stay for the gap from August 23 - August 31 must move into their summer assignment by July 4, must be continuing in summer housing for the remainder of the summer session, and must have a fall room assignment at USM. An additional $140.00 charge will be applied to the student’s account for the gap period.

Students without a fall room assignment and/or who move in to summer housing after July 5 are ineligible to live on campus for the gap period.

Non-USM students with local internships: 

Intern housing is now full.

If you would like to be put on a wait list in case we receive cancellations, please e-mail our office for an application. Interns will be placed on the wait list based on the date the application is received by our office.

University of Maine System (UMS) students and students outside UMS with local internships may also apply for housing. Students outside of the University of Maine System will be charged a slightly higher rate. Summer intern/guest housing dates run between May 12 and August 16, 2019, slightly shorter than USM student dates. Interns may arrive no earlier than May 12, and must check out no later than August 16, 2019. Assignments are made on a first-come, first-served basis, and spaces are limited.
