Snapshot of our History

UCU was established in 1967 in the basement of Coburn Hall at the University of Maine. Since then, we've grown to serve the entire University of Maine System, its students, alumni, employees and their families. We are proud to continue to serve our original membership and more, focusing on education, including Maine Maritime Academy and other select schools and employer groups.

1967 - University of Maine Employees Credit Union opened for business.

1979 - UCU began serving Maine Maritime Academy.

1987 - UCU began serving alumni of the University of Maine System and anyone working or living in the town of Orono.

1988 - Our first stand-alone branch opened on Rangeley Road at the University of Maine Campus. It offered the then 4,000 members, and 13 employees a much more accommodating space and featured UCU's first ATM machine.

1990 - UCU merged with the University of Maine Student Credit Union.

1993 - Our first Portland branch opened in the Credit Union Mortgage Service building on Forest Avenue.

2010 - Two campus branches opened, one at the University of Maine at Presque Isle and one at the University of Maine in Orono. These branches included state-of-the-art Shared Branching kiosks without a traditional teller line.

2013 - UCU broke ground at the Katahdin site and construction began on our new headquarters and retail branch in Orono.

2014 - UCU opened its new headquarters and retail branch in downtown Orono. The building features a large outdoor plaza that acts as a key focal point in the heart of downtown.

2017 - UCU celebrates 50 years of serving members!


Since our start, we have grown to have nine branch locations to serve members from, and added a variety of remote eServices to allow members to access UCU, no matter where their busy lives take them.
