About University of New England

The Success of your Program is our Business!

The University of New England offers two distinctive settings to host your event.
Our Biddeford Campus is located on a picturesque site in Biddeford, Maine, where the Saco River flows into the Atlantic Ocean. Our Portland Campus in Portland, Maine is designated a national historic district and is quintessential New England, with a central green surrounded by classic brick buildings.

Both our seaside campus and our suburban campus are equipped to host a wide variety of meetings, conferences, camps, and formal gatherings.

Certified by the Association of Collegiate Conference and Events Directors International to supply “One-Stop Shopping,” the UNE Office of Conference Services provides superior customer service in every aspect of planning and executing your event:

• Start with a site visit of campus based on YOUR availability with our professional team.
• Easy access to a wide range of meeting spaces and venues to best accommodate your group's needs.
• Catering services provided by Parkhurst Catering where the friendly staff and experienced culinary team pride themselves in building personal relationships and providing authentic culinary experiences.
• Overnight accommodations for those groups wishing to stay on the Biddeford campus in the summer months. A variety of options to suit your group’s needs with traditional and suite style residence halls.
• Professional meeting and event team that works with you not only in the planning stages, but are there for all your needs while you are on campus. AV/IT need? Room set up change? Last minute overnight guest? Food allergies? We got you covered!

The University of New England’s Office of Conference Services offers flexible, year-round meeting, event and conference planning services specially designed to meet and exceed the personal and professional needs of your group. Our commitment to quality, professionalism, customer service and the premise of ‘one stop shopping’ assures you selected the perfect venue for your events.
