Welcome to Buchanan Alumni House

A Place To Call Home

After years of planning and hard work by UMaine alumni leaders, reunion classes, and friends, the dream of having an alumni house became a reality. And what a reality it is! The University of Maine's stunning Buchanan Alumni House is everything we had hoped for… and more. From its handsome Georgian exterior perfectly matched to UMaine's historic architecture, to its spacious and elegantly appointed interiors, Buchanan Alumni House has met - and indeed exceeded - our highest expectations! With more than 13,000 alumni taking part, the campaign to construct Buchanan Alumni House was the largest in UMaine's history. Built and maintained entirely through private monies, Buchanan Alumni House is truly a "Place to Call Home" for more than 100,000 alumni and friends of the university. We hope you enjoy browsing our web site.
