The University of Southern Maine (USM) is a multi-campus public university and part of the University of Maine System in Maine, USA. USM's three primary campuses are located in Portland, Gorham, and Lewiston, Maine.
Distance education courses are available through several off-campus centers; the primary Portland, Gorham, and Lewiston-Auburn campuses; and other sites around the state. Some are broadcast via instructional television (ITV: two-way audio and one-way video); others are delivered via or videoconferencing (VC: two-way audio and video). Online courses are available as well; these may be totally asynchronous or blended (using Blackboard, Elluminate, and blended face-to-face sessions).

Originally founded as two separate universities (Gorham Normal School, University of Maine at Portland), the two state universities were combined in the 1980s.
