Everything that I studied came together in a perfect funnel — that’s exactly what college should do. It’s a real, true liberal arts experience.

One-of-a-Kind Location

As a student in one of our Department of Psychology majors, you study on UNE's scenic Biddeford Campus, where the waters of the Saco River flow into the Atlantic Ocean. Over the years, this confluence of natural resources has inspired students and faculty from around the world.

Recently named the youngest city in Maine, Biddeford and its twin city, Saco, boast an up-and-coming, hip downtown of delicious eateries, events, and more. With the development of the old Biddeford/Saco mills into restaurants, breweries, housing, fitness facilities such as yoga studios, salons, and retailers, there is something for everyone to explore in downtown. Looking to try a new type of food, grab a coffee, or shop for locally-made clothes? Biddeford/Saco has it all.
