Idyllic Location

University of Maine at Farmington is peacefully nestled in the spectacular lakes and mountains region of western Maine, an area famous for its hiking, camping, kayaking, skiing, and snowboarding.

The campus is in historic downtown Farmington, just a short walk away from coffee shops, funky stores, restaurants, banks, bookstores, a multi-screen movie theater, and a whole lot more. Farmington is also located in a region with several global cities close by, including Boston, Montréal, and New York City - all of which are frequently visited by UMF classes and clubs.


The University of Maine at Farmington is a safe, welcoming college campus that values the diverse perspectives all of our students bring to our community. Each year, we welcome college students and faculty from around the world. With an enrollment of around 1,800 students, UMF is about the same size as New England's most selective private colleges and offers many of the same advantages at a more affordable price. Small classes and close relationships with faculty members and college administrators like UMF President Kathryn "Kate" Foster are emblematic of UMF.
