The University of New England (UNE) is an independent, coeducational university with two campuses in Maine: the main campus in Biddeford and another in Portland.In 1939, a boys-only high school and junior college called the College Séraphique was founded in Biddeford by Father Decary and the Franciscan friar of St. Andre's parish.In December 2010, the university received the largest gift in its history -- $10 million from the Harold Alfond Foundation to build the Harold Alfond Athletics Complex on the Biddeford Campus, and to support interprofessional healthcare workforce education.
