Construction Relocation Information

What you need to know.

The new engineering complex will open in 2019.

The URI College of Engineering is undergoing the greatest transformation of its history. A 145.5 million dollar construction project has begun that will provide the College with some of the best engineering facilities in the country.

Existing buildings, Crawford, Gilbreth, Kelley, Kelley Annex, and Wales Halls will all be demolished (beginning in Spring 2017) and a new, approximately 180,000 square foot engineering complex will be built on the site, to be completed in 2019.

During the demolition of the existing buildings and the construction of the new complex, classes and research activities will take place in “swing space” on the URI campus (in Pastore & Morrill Halls) and at the Schneider Electric Building in West Kingston.

Many EGR programs will be temporarily relocated to Pastore / Morrill Halls and to Schneider Electric in West Kingston.

Bliss Hall, including the Deans Office and CVE, will remain. CHE will move to Pastore / Morrill Halls. ISE and MCE move primarily to Pastore / Morrill. ECBE and Capstone move primarily to Schneider Electric in West Kingston.

Shuttle transportation is available from the URI Memorial Union to Schneider.
