Welcome to the URI family
Rhody Rams live by our URI Cornerstones. These foundations of community rights and responsibilities create and sustain a vibrant, inclusive, and supportive environment for individuals to live and learn.
The Dean of Students Office offers a wide variety of services designed to empower and facilitate involvement in the university’s decision making process. We invite students to join our University Student Conduct Board, participate in student service and leadership opportunities, as well seek academic and housing accommodations when needed.
The Dean of Students Office also offers guidance around student conduct, and meets with students who are learning to make better choices. Our substance abuse prevention services support students who may need additional assistance as they transition to the university and take their first steps into adulthood.
Students who are looking for a place to live off-campus may also find options for living in nearby communities through our commuter housing database.
We are committed to providing a rich educational and learning experience for all students in order to help them become the local, state, national, and global leader they are capable of being.
Our mission is to have every student say about their interactions with us:
“You cared. You helped. I was inspired to succeed”
