About Us

The Department of Housing and Residential Life (HRL) oversees about 5,500 students in 24 undergraduate residence halls, three undergraduate apartment complexes, and one graduate apartment complex. For first year residents, our housing opportunities include numerous Living and Learning Communities.

Public Safety is a top concern for URI, and HRL works closely with campus police and the emergency medical response team to ensure the safety of all residents. Fire drills are held twice each semester, and URI even has its own night watch that helps build a culture of trust between students and law enforcement.
