Lodging & Meals

We will arrange your accommodations on campus, or in the local area. A large part of the Maine Media experience is living and eating with fellow professionals and instructors.  We therefore offer a variety of accommodations on our campus and in the local area to suit almost every taste and budget.

Many student accommodations are within walking distance of the classrooms and dining area. Our free van service makes the rounds each morning, noon and evening (mid-June through early September). Maine Media accommodations are limited to approximately 125 beds and are assigned on a first-come basis. Please indicate your lodging preference on the application, and we will attempt to fill your request. Those who apply early have the best selection of accommodations.

All rates are for six nights, Sunday evening through Saturday morning. All rates include meals from Sunday Dinner through Friday dinner. Check-in is after 3 PM on Sunday. Checkout time is 11AM on Saturday. If you wish to arrive a day early, or stay over Saturday night at the end of your workshop, there is an additional charge of $150 in the Campus Residence/Standard Single categories, $85 in the Economy and Kate’s Cottage categories. Charges for Saturdays in the Deluxe category will vary from $175-$300, depending upon time of year & availability at the hotel. Please note that this additional charge covers lodging costs only, no meal services are available. For those who are departing on Sunday, the checkout time is 10 AM.
