At this time UMaine is offering a limited number of campus tours by Appointment only for high school seniors, transfer students and those applying for Spring and Fall 2021 admission.
All visitors must pre-register for our campus tours. Walk-in tours will not be available. UMaine has reopened our campus to visitors and added key health and safety measures designed to protect everyone while still showing you all UMaine has to offer.
All visitors planning to visit campus will be required to undergo a health screening that will include a temperature check and questions regarding COVID-19. In addition, all visitors (aged 2 and up) are required to wear face-covers at all times while on campus.
The most important thing each of us can do to ensure a successful visit is follow the Office of the Governor’s COVID-19 Response and the Maine CDC’s health and safety requirements, which include mask-wearing and maintaining a physical distance of at least six feet whenever possible. The Maine CDC has mandated that all out-of-state travelers coming into Maine, as well as Maine residents returning to Maine, complete a 14-day quarantine upon arrival. We expect every member of the college community and our visitors to do their part to keep all of us safe by following the guidelines outlined at https://umaine.edu/return/.
Before arrival on campus, all visitors must complete the mandatory health screening. If you answer yes to any question in the screening, you will be asked to reschedule your visit for a different time.
We are very excited to have you and your families on campus soon!
Please register online or call 207.581.1524 to attend a campus tour. Please note that tours may not be available due to holidays or university student breaks.
