Facilities and Equipment

Thomas M. Ryan Family AuditoriumURI can assist you in your efforts to plan all aspects of any conferences, workshops, seminars, short courses, and training programs you would like to host.  We can offer you meeting planning assistance and access to facilities on our various campuses- anything from small meeting rooms to large, auditorium style rooms accommodating up to several hundred people, and everything in between.  Let us help you!

We can also work with you to identify any equipment usage needs you might have.  From the 3-D Imaging capability for biomedical sciences, and its various applications, to equipment in URI’s Sensor and Surface Technology Lab in chemical engineering, we may be able to share what we have developed here at URI for research purposes, to help you achieve your business objectives.

Here are just a few examples of the ways we may be able to help:
