Our campus occupies a picturesque 135-acre site overlooking and bordering Lake Auburn—a great setting for learning and recreation, whether you live on campus or commute.
Located in Auburn just two miles from the center of the city and close to many stores and restaurants, CMCC is served by regular public transportation. Our campus facilities include four main buildings housing academic, lab, technical, and student support spaces; three residence halls; Kirk gymnasium and fitness center; and the Culinary Arts Center. In 2019, we have added a new, multi-sport synthetic turf athletic complex and an Esports Arena.
As Maine’s second largest urban center, Lewiston-Auburn offers numerous opportunities for social, recreational, cultural and educational activities. Auburn is located in the south central region of Maine and is the Gateway to the Western Mountains. It is midway on the Maine Turnpike between Maine’s capital, Augusta and its largest city, Portland—approximately 35 miles from each city.
