Remote access to online bibliographic databases is provided to students while enrolled in MCHP.

Computer Lab

MCHP has two computer labs and standalone computer stations throughout the college for student use. Public Wi-Fi is also available for students to use. Each computer is updated with the software necessary for students enrolled at MCHP. Students may access the computer lab seven days a week between 6am-10pm by using their college identification badge.

Cafeteria

The cafeteria, located on the first floor of Central Maine Medical Center, is available to all students. Meals can be purchased at an employee-discounted rate with a student ID badge. The cafeteria menu may be found here.

 

Parking

Designated on-campus parking facilities are available to students at no additional fee. Students will complete the parking application form during new student orientation. Students parking without authorization or in a non-designated parking area risk losing parking privileges, fines, and/or towing.

Security

The on-campus security personnel actively assist MCHP in maintaining a safe and orderly campus environment. The security department may be accessed anytime by calling extension 2299 (on campus) or 207-795-2299 (off-campus).

MCHP identification badges will be issued to all students, faculty, and staff. These badges must be worn while at the college and in the clinical areas. Access to the college, computer lab, and library may be gained by identification badge access only.

Students are responsible for keeping their valuables secure and vehicles locked. Students leaving the college or clinical setting may call security for an escort to their vehicle.

Any suspicious activity or actual breach of security should be reported to the security office immediately.

Student Housing

While students are not required to live on campus, MCHP does offer on-campus housing. Our residence hall is located within walking distance to MCHP and Central Maine Medical Center. Single and double occupancy rooms are available on a first come, first-served basis and may be requested by contacting the Bursar at 207-795-2649. A meal plan is not available, but a student may access the cafeteria at Central Maine Medical Center.

A complete list of resident rules will be provided to students living in the residence hall. Students are expected to follow the rules while living on campus and risk the loss of housing due to infractions.

Health Services

Matriculated students are required to purchase accident insurance through the College. The cost will be billed to the students on an annual basis. Details of the plan are available from the Bursar at 207-795-2649.
Each fall, students are provided flu immunizations. In addition, an annual Tuberculin Skin Test is required. Students requiring medical attention, while on campus or clinical, may report to the Emergency Department at their clinical location or CMMC. Students will be billed for all services.
