On April 16, 2014, URI broke ground for a new LGBTQ Center on Upper College Road. When the $2.1 million, 4,300 square foot site is completed, URI’s new center will be a safe and affirming place for all members of the community. URI is the first institution of higher education in the country to design and build a free standing LGBTQ Center. Watch this page for updates as the construction of our new center progresses!
