Weldin Hall is a co-ed residence hall specifically designed for first year housing with a floor plan to encourage the social interaction and facilitate a smooth transition to college life at URI. About 330 residents live in this corridor style building.
Similar to its sister building, Barlow Hall, Weldin was constructed in 1963, receiving renovations in 2001 and more notably in the summer of 2016. Weldin Hall is home to three Living and Learning Communities, so students from a variety of majors can be found in hitting the books in the lounges or chatting with the staff in the office. On a sunny day, many will take their studies outdoors to the “grassy knoll” between Weldin and Barlow Hall.
Weldin is located along the southern edge of URI’s “Freshman Village” which also includes Adams, Barlow, Bressler, Browning, Butterfield, Hutchinson, Merrow, Peck, and Tucker.
There are no kitchens in the rooms, so a meal plan is required.
