Visit USM

There's no better way for both undergraduate and graduate students to get to know the University of Southern Maine (USM) than by seeing us with your own two eyes. Get a peek into life as a Husky with a walking tour of campus, an information session or open house, or a special event with faculty and current students.

If you aren't able to make it to campus for a visit or want to see a little more before booking your campus tour, take a virtual look around our three distinct campuses in Portland, Gorham, and Lewiston. Our interactive 360º photos will give you a peek inside our dorms, classrooms, labs, and other spaces on campus.
