Off Campus Housing

The Southern Maine and the greater Portland area provides a number of rental options. However, finding the right property will take time and research on your part. The local newspapers' classifieds are excellent place to begin the search. The rental listings found in the Portland Press Herald as well as other area newspapers are available online, click here.

The unique coastal communities in Maine produce a number of seasonal properties that are only used in the summer months by the owner. This allows the owner to advertise to our students who seek housing for during the academic year. Additionally, local property owners contact us about listing local rental properties available in Southern Maine and greater Portland area. This service provided by the University is an informational service only. The University does not find off-campus housing for students.
