All visitors must-preregister for our campus tours. Walk-in tours will not be available. UMaine is offering campus tours to visitors and added key health and safety measures designed to protect everyone while still showing you all UMaine has to offer.

To start the tour all visitors are subject to have submitted a health screening questionnaire. 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 from out of state travel, complete a 14-day quarantine upon arrival. The following states are exempt from the test or quarantine requirement: New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, and Vermont. 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 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!
