Parking Policy

Students, staff, faculty and visitors who wish to park on the Portland or Biddeford campuses must display a parking permit. Students with vehicles should register them with the Permit Store. Enter "UNE" in the Permit Store search bar for a variety of parking choices. Temporary parking permits are furnished to guests of the University and part-time employees. For more information about parking permits, visit the Parking Policies page. 

Alternative Transportation

UNE has launched four transportation initiatives to preserve the green spaces on our campuses and to practice one of the University's most cherished core values: stewardship of our environment. 


UNE offers free bicycles to the first 150 freshmen, who have made their initial deposit and plan to live in the Residence Halls. A select number of students will receive a free bicycle, lock and helmet. This bike is yours to keep, even after you graduate! We have bike racks across campus as well as options for storage during the winter months.


The University is pleased to continue its partnership with car-sharing company Zipcar. Freshmen, sophomores and juniors who opt to leave their cars at home can obtain Free Zipcar gift cards from the University. UNE has two all-wheel-drive Zipcars that can be signed out by the hour by University community members. Registration for this program is $35. For more information about car-sharing, visit the UNE Zipcar website


Nor'easter Shuttle

Offering a regular schedule seven days a week, the Nor'easter Shuttle transports UNE faculty, staff and students to and from the University and designated stops in Biddeford. You just need to present a UNE ID card. Visit the Shuttlebus-Zoom website for routes and schedules.


The Shuttlebus-Zoom offers weekday service from the Biddeford Campus to Portland, with stops in Old Orchard Beach, the Maine Mall and Portland along the way. The Zoom bus is available for express service between Biddeford and Portland. Visit the  Shuttlebus-Zoom website for rates, routes and schedules.

Ferry Beach Shuttle

Many of the University's students live across the mouth of the Saco River from the Biddeford Campus. On select days, and weather permitting, a local boat operator shuttles University community members across the river.
