Classrooms are small, dining halls offer a nice variety, the dorms are mostly on the Gorham Campus, so students have to be bused in for classes in Portland.

Things have likely changed a bit since 2006. Libraries, computer labs and dining halls were adequate when I was there.

Rated January 2016

computer lab is being rebuilt, some dorms are old and some are new, classrooms are old and need repair, dining hall needs to be updated
