Barlow Hall is a co-ed residence hall that’s home to first-year students only, living in single-sex triple rooms. This traditional corridor-style residence hall features a floor plan that encourages social interaction, so you’ll make friends easily as you transition to life at URI. With 330 freshman residents and an energetic student staff, Barlow is a great place to call home.
Barlow was built in unison with Weldin Hall in 1963, receiving renovations in the early 2000s and more notably in the summer of 2016. Barlow attracts a range of students, as it is home to URI’s living and learning community (LLC) for those who are still searching for a major. Through this LLC, students are well connected with peer mentors and academic advisors to match their interests with an academic major.
There are hallway bathrooms (male and female specific) on each floor that are maintained by URI custodial staff. Barlow is part of URI’s “Freshman Village,” which also includes Adams, Bressler, Browning, Butterfield, Hutchinson, Merrow, Peck, Tucker, and Weldin.
There are no kitchens in the rooms, so a meal plan is required.
