Live & Learn at pro

Housing isn’t something you’d traditionally expect to find at a community college, but it’s one of the benefits of attending pro. Here, you have the opportunity to live on either one of our campuses. You can choose to live on our oceanside South Portland Campus or kick up your feet in one of our spacious apartment-style suites at our Midcoast Campus in Brunswick. Wherever you choose to live on campus, you can be sure it’s an experience you’ll enjoy. Please know that due to high enrollment, our housing demand has significantly increased. As such, we are prioritizing those who live outside a reasonable commuting distance. More details can be found below under the Housing Application Process section.
