Unity College is America's Environmental College, and our unique location makes environmental experiental learning easy. We are in the middle of it all: outdoor summer and winter activities are within easy access to the College, and major metropolitan areas and airports are just a few hours away.
The Unity Campus
Unity College sits on 225 acres of fields and woodlands overlooking Lake Winnecook—also known as Unity Pond—in the village of Unity, Maine, home to 1,800 friendly inhabitants.
Our campus makes it easy for faculty to expand your learning opportunities beyond traditional classrooms and labs by offering field experiences, service learning, internships, and study-abroad semesters.
From Maine’s western mountains to its rocky Atlantic coast, the rich natural heritage of our region enhances Unity’s academic programs and offers a lot of outdoor fun!
As one of the outstanding vacation destinations in the United States, our state offers endless outdoor recreational activities in all seasons. You won’t need to go far to find great adventures. For a complete list of activities, go to Visit Maine, the official Maine Tourism website.
