About Saint Joseph’s Campus

The College overlooks Sebago Lake, one of Maine’s most beautiful spots and a popular four-season recreation area.

  • Only 20 miles northwest of coastal Portland, Maine’s largest city, an hour north of Portsmouth and just two hours from Boston.
  • The campus is easily navigated on foot: scenic paths connect campus buildings, and a brisk five-minute walk will take you anywhere you need to be.
  • A hilly descent to our own private sandy beach opens on a panoramic view of the lake with the White Mountains as a backdrop on the horizon.
  • Pack for a range of weather conditions. The weather in New England can change—you may experience cool summer nights, and 90-degree days with high humidity.
  • Casual dress is the rule. Bring good, comfortable walking shoes.
How to Get Here
  • If you arrive by bus, plane, or train, we’ll be waiting to greet you at the terminal and bring you to our campus. (When you arrive, just look for the Saint Joseph’s College T-shirts our staff will be wearing.) Please remember that you will be responsible for your own luggage. Please request this service by filling in the Housing and Travel form.
  • If you are staying off campus, you are responsible for your own transportation.

  • The College campus has a small beach on Sebago Lake with walking trails, fire pit, paddle boards and kayaks.
