Living at URI… The learning experience of a lifetime

When you live at URI, one of the first things you’ll realize is that plenty of learning happens outside the classroom—and inside the residence halls. This is not only where you’ll study, but where you’ll meet lifelong friends, share common interests, explore new ideas, and build a strong foundation for your college experience. Every step of the way, the URI Housing and Residential Life staff are here to answer your questions and support you, so that you can feel at home, connect with your peers, and do your best work.
