Innovative education that goes beyond training, the classroom and other universities-that's the UNE way. UNE professors are world-class researchers, authors and Fulbright scholars. You'll get to know them personally, working side-by-side in the lab, on a research vessel, in the field, or across the globe. In addition to flagship health sciences disciplines, a full range of liberal arts programs makes UNE a unique participatory, educational environment. No matter what degree you pursue, the interdisciplinary learning at UNE will connect you with experiences to position you for success. 

There is no better way to get a feel for life at UNE than by visiting campus. Join us for a walk or bike ride around our ocean-side Biddeford Campus, check out our beach and beautiful water views, and learn more about our experiential undergraduate programs, top-notch academic and athletic facilities, residence halls, and more. We offer daily campus tours as well as open houses and information sessions tailored to specific areas of academic interest. To view a virtual tour and to schedule an on-campus visit, go to
