Something for Everyone
UNE’s Biddeford Campus hits the “just right” sweet spot between a cozy, supportive home-away-from-home and a buzzing, active community where there’s always something for you to do. Meet friends at The Pub in the Danielle Ripich Commons for a bite, work out at one of our fitness centers, enjoy a movie night in your dorm, cheer on a Nor’easter team, or take a sunset stroll on Freddy Beach — this is a place where you can do you.

Whether you're interested in an academic or cultural organization, hobby club, or student government, you’ll meet like-minded people ready to welcome you aboard. There’s no better way to build your community, pursue your passions, and have a boatload of fun.
Living on Campus
We know it’s a lot easier to succeed academically when you feel like you’re an integral part of a supportive community, eating and sleeping well, socializing and having fun, and able to find help when you have a problem. UNE reserves six residence halls for first-year students only, making it easier to bond and form enduring friendships. As upperclassmen, you’ll experience living in suite-style dorms.
At UNE, you’re able to lead a healthy and active lifestyle. Whether you’re looking to work out, participate in intramural sports, or rent outdoor recreation equipment, you’ll find it on the Biddeford Campus.
Highlights of our recreational offerings include:
- Two fitness centers
- Group exercise rooms
- 6-lane pool
- Hockey rink
- Tennis courts
- Basketball and multipurpose indoor courts
- Rental equipment for outdoor adventures
