Think Big, We Do.
Rhode Island Seal


You have to admit, we’re in a great spot. We’re minutes from the beach, 30 miles south of Providence, 75 miles from Boston, 160 miles from NYC, with Newport just across the bay. The Kingston Amtrak Station is right down the road from campus, T.F. Green Airport only 20 minutes away, and for your Rhode Island destinations,  RIPTA runs dozens of buses from campus every day.

On campus, there’s a shuttle service for those days when climbing the hills of our beautiful campus is asking too much—and now there’s even an app for that.

Rhode Island may be the smallest state, but it’s easy to navigate—and from our vantage point, there’s plenty to discover no matter what path you follow.
