If this is your first visit to our website, come explore the University in depth. While there is no substitute for visiting our two campuses in person, you can get a fair idea of what UNE is about by spending some quality time here at our "virtual campuses." Be sure to check out our campus photo tours, which capture the beauty of our campus by the ocean in Biddeford, Maine and our historic, suburban campus in Portland, Maine.

DRipich_2010The University of New England is an exciting, growing and dynamic institution of higher education. We have flagship degree programs in the health and life sciences, and the only medical school in Maine. We also offer strong degree programs in social sciences, management, education and the liberal arts.

The University has been ranked one of the best regional universities in the Northeast by U.S. News & World Report, and our College of Osteopathic Medicine has been recognized for educational excellence in primary care, geriatrics and osteopathic manipulative medicine.

The character of the University is best reflected by the kinds of students we attract. UNE students are idealistic, compassionate, physically active and hardworking. These traits serve them well as they go on to become well-educated health care professionals, osteopathic physicians, marine and environmental scientists, social workers, teachers, business managers and other highly-valued professionals.

As you can see from our website, UNE offers our students a unique blend of academic rigor, a lively social life, and diverse recreational opportunities on two distinctive, attractive campuses.

Again, thank you for your interest in the University of New England. We hope that what you see here piques your interest and leads you to further exploration.
