Butterfield Hall is a first year, co-ed, corridor style building with community (male and female specific) bathrooms on each of the floors that are maintained by URI custodial staff. It’s home to about 250 students.
About half of the College of Health Sciences Living and Learning Community students live in Butterfield. Kinesiology, Health Studies, and Nutrition majors, when not in Butterfield, can usually be found just down the road at the Anna Fascitelli Fitness & Wellness Center, or in Butterfield Dining Hall. Named after a former URI President, Butterfield Hall was built in 1950 and was renovated in 2002.
Butterfield houses one of two main dining centers at URI, and underwent a $12 million facelift in 2015 that included a 10,000-square-foot renovation of the dining room and a 7,500-square-foot addition. The project included the rehabilitation of a student lounge on the upper level that leads to an outdoor roof deck. The project increased the capacity of the dining hall from 360 to 562 seats, and also led to LEED Silver certification for the building.
Butterfield is part of URI’s “Freshman Village” which also includes Adams, Barlow, Bressler, Browning, Hutchinson, Merrow, Peck, Tucker, and Weldin.
There are no kitchens in the rooms, so a meal plan is required.
