York County Community College (YCCC) is pleased to announce that it now offers a housing option for full-time students. YCCC housing is located in the Hampton Inn & Suites right here in Wells Maine, known as “the friendliest town in Maine.”

Beginning this fall, forty-nine+ beds will be available in fully furnished rooms, with additional amenities on-site for residential students such as weekly housekeeping as well as pool, and fitness center access. The student’s double bedrooms feature queen-sized beds, free wifi, television, mini-fridge, microwave, laundry facilities, and private full bathrooms. One Director of Residence Life, along with four Resident Advisors will be on staff to assist students.

“We are thrilled to offer an opportunity for students to experience a residential community here at YCCC. Housing will provide students with a living and learning community that facilitates engagement and connection. Housing also gives a chance for prospective students to access unique and quality educational offerings that might otherwise be outside of their commuter reach.”

Dr. Jennifer Laney – YCCC Dean of Students

The new residential community at YCCC offers an innovative take on residential life, with the benefit of a unique and inclusive living opportunity. As involved members of the community, students will get to share similar goals and interests all whilst broadening friendships and experiences. Residents will get support and build community with students and staff through engaging programs and events.

The below basic requirements MUST be met in order for students to be selected to move into and continue living throughout the academic semesters. Applicants must:

  • be a matriculated (enrolled) student in a YCCC academic degree program.
  • be enrolled as a full-time student (defined as taking a minimum of 12 academic credits per semester in both the fall and spring semesters) in any academic program and making satisfactory progress toward a degree. Students carrying less than 12 credits per semester may appeal to live in YCCC housing.
  • be enrolled in at least nine credits of in-person and on-campus courses. Exemptions will be made based on course availability.
  • maintain a minimum cumulative Grade Point Average (GPA) of 2.0. Students who fall below the 2.0 cumulative GPA may appeal to live in YCCC residential space. This appeal must be in writing and needs to contain a plan for future academic success.
