Situated among the rivers, forests and rugged Atlantic coastline of Down East Maine, the University of Maine at Machias is an affordable liberal arts college in a close-knit rural community. Our students develop a sense of authentic connection from learning in an intimate, small campus environment — while enjoying the low tuition rates found at a large public university.
UMM offers the best of both worlds. Our students learn in state-of-the-art biology labs — and they pull on rubber boots to study marine organisms in the mud. They analyze the literary classics — and they draw, write and print their own graphic novels. They gain marketable job skills by working in the field alongside community members and partner organizations — and they develop close relationships with faculty who will advocate for their education every step of the way.

University of Maine at Machias Reviews
The other students were another thing. Some were very welcoming, others seemed to live for drama and caused it non stop. And others refused to act like the college students they were and acted like children.
The campus has resources and people that are there to help you and although I am a psychology major working with some of the best professors I’ve ever met.
This university is a safe space for diversity and I have met so many people from all over and from different Backgrounds who have impacted my life and have taught me to be brave and to be myself.
I would love to see more international students as well as the sports program coming back to top off this excellent experience.
