Biddeford is perhaps the youngest community in Maine. With a median age of 33.9 years, we are 29.8% younger than the State of Maine, where the median age is 44.0 years. These numbers are based on the Census Bureau's American Community Survey 5 year estimate (2012 to 2016). Much of the youth here is due to the presence of the University of New England. But millennials from all over have discovered Biddeford as a vibrant and exciting place to live and work.
