At this time our Orientation Tours are full.
Orientation Tours are for students confirmed to attend Fall 2022 and were not able to attend our in-person Orientation in June.
All visitors must pre-register for our Orientation Tours. Walk-in tours will not be available. UMaine is offering Orientation Tours to visitors with added key health and safety measures designed to protect everyone while still showing you all UMaine has to offer.
Under the Moving Maine Forward plan, Maine has shifted its COVID-19 travel policy to automatically exempt all states, unless a state is otherwise determined by the Maine CDC as being high risk. If one or more states see a spike in cases of highly contagious COVID-19 variants, Maine will apply its test or quarantine requirement to travelers to and from that state. The Maine CDC will publicly announce any such states when they are identified.
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!
Thank you for your interest in our Orientation Tours. Unfortunately, our Orientation Tours are now full. If you were unable to register, you are welcome to view our Orientation Checklist for a complete list of items we’d go over on the tour.
