Technology & Library
The University of Maine Farmington is committed to creating a campus where information technology allows for active and collaborative learning, where conversations continue outside the walls of our classrooms, and where everyone has access to information — at any time, from any place.
Farmington & Technology — Always Ahead of the Curve
We were hardwired to the Internet before it was cool. And we were one of the first to go wireless. Today UMF has wireless networks, smart classrooms, specialty labs, and extensive IT user services. And wireless laptops are pretty much standard operating equipment among students and faculty.
As jobs in every field get more and more tech-oriented, everyone here at UMF becomes more and more tech-savvy. Staying ahead of the curve and in front of the pack.
It's About Connecting
But at UMF, computers don't replace the close, interpersonal relationships between students and faculty, or students and students ... they enhance them. In the years we've been a wired and wireless campus, we've found that people here communicate more — not less. We communicate better — not worse. We become more connected to each other — not more isolated.
Nearly all students come to UMF with computers — laptops and desktops, PCs and Macs. If you are admitted and choose to come here, we strongly encourage you to consider purchasing one of our recommended laptops. These come with attractive prices and on-campus maintenance support. But if you don't already have or can't afford to purchase a computer, don't worry. You'll still have full access to our computer labs and the networked PCs all over campus, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
