Prospective Students Alumni Parents Students Directions Home


Our students come primarily from the northeast geographic area and from the east coast west to the Mississippi and Great lakes. International students populate our classes also. Castine is a small coastal community located at the head of majestic Penobscot Bay. Settled in 1613 and named for the French nobleman and trader, Baron de St. Castin, the town is rich in history, natural beauty, and maritime tradition. The town has a year-round population of roughly 1,500. White clapboard houses, a bustling harbor, museums, and the still evident traces of Revolutionary War forts make the pristine port an ideal setting for study.

Castine is close to Acadia National Park, Deer Isle, and other notable Maine attractions. Castine's climate undergoes a change of four seasons. Cool, wet springs give way to warm, mild summers. Overnight temperatures begin to cool as autumn approaches, and Downeast Maine usually receives its first snow by late November.

Maine Maritime's 35-acre18-building campus is located 35 miles south of Bangor, home of Bangor International Airport. If arriving by highway from the south, take I-95 north from Portland to Augusta and follow Rte. 3 East to Belfast and then Rte. 175 and Rte. 166, making a right-hand turn at any intersection where a choice exists. We encourage you to visit.

Castine is a quiet coastal village. Most events occur on campus or involve the surrounding beauty of the coast of Maine. Bangor and Ellsworth are the closest cities and are about 40 minutes away by automobile, and Acadia National Park is within an hour-and-a-half drive. Although the graduate program is a concentrated experience, breaks from the classroom may include sailing, kayaking, swimming, and racquetball at campus facilities; and tennis, golf, and hiking directly adjacent to the campus.

Please visit for details on Student Services, Financial Aid, Student Housing and Residential and Recreational Facilities. A furnished apartment-style residential facility (within walking distance of the class-rooms) is available for graduate students who make their room reservations before the designated deadline (which is usually March 1st of the year that they plan to matriculate).
