Residence Halls

Your hall is the place where you can kick your shoes off and truly be at home. At UNE, we understand that where you live and with whom you live are important parts of college life. Residential and commuter life are a vibrant part of our on-campus community — living, working, studying, and playing here, you won't miss a beat.

Five residence halls — Assisi, Avila, Padua, Siena, and Featherman — are reserved for first-year students only. Upperclassmen live in suite-style arrangements in Champlain, Sokokis, East, and West Halls. Frederick Hall may house returning, transfer, or new students.

Get involved

There are many ways to get involved in residential life. Take part in events and programs, become a Resident Advisor, and contribute your ideas as a member of the Residential Student Life Association. Our sense of community will make you feel at home while here at school.


As a residential student, you are assigned a meal plan. The plan includes a set number of meals per week in our dining hall, flexible spending dollars for on-campus dining, and Nor'easter Dollars for select off-campus restaurants in the area. You can change your meal plan at the beginning of the semester.

Our Biddeford Campus has five dining locations, including the Danielle Ripich Commons, where the third floor is the main dining hub on the campus.

For more information about the dining facilities and meal plans visit Dining Services.
