About Conference Services


Hosting a range of gatherings on UNE's two campuses, Conference Services can arrange your meeting spaces, dining, accommodations, and more. With the details in order, you and your guests can enjoy your event.

The University of New England offers two beautiful settings to host your event. Both our seaside campus in Biddeford, Maine, and our suburban campus in Portland, Maine, are equipped to host a wide variety of meetings, conferences, camps, and formal gatherings.

Whether you're looking for the ideal site for your business, organization, or private party, our staff works with you to plan and orchestrate the best event you can imagine. Certified by the Association of Collegiate Conference and Events Directors International to supply “One-Stop Shopping,” the UNE Office of Conference Services provides easy access to our range of facilities, catering services, guest registration management, and overnight accommodations. With the logistics in our experienced hands, you can enjoy your event on campus to the fullest.

The Perfect Backdrops


Our Biddeford Campus, situated on the Atlantic coast, is a scenic oceanfront setting for your occasion. The site provides large meeting spaces equipped with audio-visual technology and a selection of comfortable overnight accommodations. Our athletic facilities include a gymnasium, ice rink, and grass and turf fields. We look after your guests’ needs fully through our dining facilities and specialty catering.


The Portland Campus is furnished with smaller classroom and lecture spaces – also equipped with audio-visual technology – for your workshops or seminars. Accompanied by our catering service, this suburban setting affords performance space and proximity to the attractions of Maine’s largest city.



As an additional service to you, we offer full-service online registration to assist you in managing your event’s attendance. In line with our value of streamlined organization, we register your attendees for breakout sessions, track their meal choices or dietary concerns, and accept and process secure payment.

Greening your Meeting

Reflecting UNE’s broad goal of improving sustainability, Conference Services strives to reduce our carbon footprint and be eco-friendly. The value of your event package increasingly includes its attention to environmental impact, and we are proud to offer you a host of options for “Greening your Meeting.” We help you to implement green alternatives that will promote more environmentally conscious events for you, your guests, and our community.
