Either way, UNE’s Biddeford Campus offers five dining venues that serve up great tasting food, each with its own unique ambiance. Whether you’re meeting some friends for pub-style food at The Hang, enjoying the river views at the Decary Dining Hall, or grabbing a sandwich and fruit smoothie while you study at the Windward Café, you’ll always find a place to eat on campus that suits your taste buds and mood.

This process affirms UNE’s culture of continuous reflection and assessment in our learning community, and the resulting self-study report helps UNE set and pursue its strategic goals. The University has been successfully and continuously accredited by NEASC for more than 50 years.
