Colleges in Maine: Universities, Trade and Technical Schools

Maine Colleges Summary

Maine is a relatively small state, and it has less than 45 colleges and post-secondary schools. Only about 125,000 students attend these schools. Only seven US states have fewer students. Maine also has a relatively small amount of its population enrolled in colleges and post-secondary schools, and is one of only 5 US states with less than 5.25% of its population enrolled.

Over 35% of Maine's students reside in dorm rooms, a very high figure. Only four US states has a higher percentage of their students enrolled in dorms. Part of the reason for this is that there are not many for-profit schools in Maine (for-profit schools normally don't have dorms) with only one in five of Maine's adult education institutions being for-profit schools.

The two largest colleges in the state are the University of Maine and the University of Southern Maine, both having a bit over 10,000 students.
