Important Address Information:

  • Be sure to use the mailing address where you live at the time of your order. Permits mailed to a future address (i.e. September off-campus rental) may become lost in the mail. If you are renting off-campus, inform the town’s post office (i.e. Narragansett Post Office) that you are a new resident at that address or the mail could be undeliverable.

Note: Permit orders displaying only a Dorm and/or room number for a mailing address will not be delivered by the post office.

Returning Students: Be sure to update your mailing address. Permits not received due to an invalid mailing address will incur a replacement fee of $50.00.
