Like in St. Kitts, all student housing in Portland is off-campus. There is a wide variety of housing to satisfy students' needs. Housing stock includes apartments, houses, and hotels. Some accommodations may include shared homes or apartments with a landlord.
Students are advised to deal directly with the landlords, rental companies, and hotels. Many landlords in Maine require a deposit and or references from prior landlords. Some may also require a background and credit report. Make sure to read all contracts. Please be sure you understand the use of deposits for damage and cleaning. In addition, please be aware that this list is only a guide. UMHS does not contract or negotiate on students' behalf.

Warning: To avoid housing scams, verify all rental contracts and the legitimacy of the rental operator before releasing funds. UMHS’ finance department can assist you in verifying these things. For your financial security, we strongly recommend that students do not use Craigslist.
Please feel free to send your rental information or forward any questions you have to our CFO, Anne Prillaman (email@example.com).
