A Close Campus Community within a Thriving City
As a student on UNE's Portland Campus, you’ll enjoy the best of both worlds: the independence and excitement that comes from off-campus living in Maine’s most vibrant city, as well as a tight-knit campus community that offers strong professional, peer, and faculty support in academics and career-planning.
Get Involved: Graduate Students
As a graduate or undergraduate health professions student on the Portland Campus, you’ll find ample opportunities for involvement. The Office of Graduate and Professional Student Affairs is your hub for connecting with the campus community through events, service opportunities, student organizations, and more. You’ll meet like-minded peers who are passionate about health care, community service, and getting involved — and also about regular lunchtime bingo or morning exercise classes.

The UNE Portland Campus for the Health Sciences
For decades, UNE’s Portland Campus has been home to many of the University’s health professions programs including PA, PT, OT, pharmacy, nursing, dental medicine, and more. In 2025, UNE’s College of Osteopathic Medicine will move from the Biddeford Campus into the new Harold and Bibby Alfond Center for Health Sciences in Portland. By bringing our health professions programs together into one interprofessional learning community, we will establish UNE’s Portland Campus for the Health Sciences as the center of health care education in Northern New England.
