Computers, Email, and the Internet

ComputersMaine Maritime Academy now requires all entering students to have a laptop computer and printer.  MMA provides internet access and a campus wide network to facilitate instruction and communication.

  • Email is provided to all MMA students for the duration of their enrollment.
  • Wireless connectivity is available throughout the campus and on the ship.
  • The Campus Portal is updated daily to keep student, faculty, alumni, and family abreast of activities and schedules on campus.
  • Course Home Pages allow faculty to present their courses electronically.

MMA’s Information Technology Department now offers an optional Laptop Purchasing Program.  If you choose not to participate in the MMA Laptop Purchasing Program, MMA does not endorse a particular brand of laptop.  View our laptop guidelines, requirements, and purchasing program at

We realize that requiring this computer represents an additional cost to attending college. We are committed to ensuring that this does not prevent anyone from attending Maine Maritime. Therefore, if you are unable to secure the necessary funds, call the MMA financial aid director for possible alternative financing.

If you already have a laptop computer and want to be sure that it meets our network and software requirements, please call. We will be happy to help you in any way possible.

We look forward to your joining our technology network!
