University of New England Reviews

Here at UNE you’ll find a very small campus with a friendly student body, staff, and professors. The freshman dorms are borderline claustrophobic, especially if you're a freshman in a triple. Not known for being a party school, this university is usually quiet on weekdays. There are plenty of clubs to sign up for but finding time to go to them can be challenging if you’re devoted to homework and studying. However, the campus does give students the opportunity to participate in some great weekend activities!
If one of your main concerns during a college hunt is the food, I suggest you look somewhere else. As someone who isn’t too picky about what they eat, I can’t say I’m happy with what I’m served. As for the safety of students living on campus I’m shocked at how easy it is for people to walk in and out of dorm buildings. On the flip side, there has never been a time I felt uncomfortable walking around campus by myself whether it be to the Alfond Forum or the beach.

I love it at the University of New England. I have found myself a group of friends that have similar ideals that I have. I found a work study job on Campus within my first month at school. I have joined clubs, and really stepped out of my comfort zone to become who I am now. I love how personable my professors are.
The party scene at UNE is kind of underground which is nice because it isn't a huge party school like say UNH or URI. It is in a beautiful area!
I would like to see the campus grow in some ways to accomidate more living opportunities.
Went to UNE for a year and still regret going to this day. What they don't tell you at orientation is only about half of their students return after one year because the experience is below expectations. The food is AWFUL, the programming is miserable, and it's hard to get anywhere if you don't have a car because the location sucks. There's also a ratio of 4 girls to 1 boy on campus, meaning girls can get very mean and caddy over boys. For a school that makes a ton of money a year, they seem to make a lot of cuts, like for example, they told incoming marine bio students that they'd have a program with seals on campus, and cut it less than a month before school started. When I lived in the dorms, maintenance sucked. We had a broken shower that they kept claiming to "fix" but never did, leaving us with two showers all year for over 25 girls. If I hadn't made such good friends, I'd give it one star.
