Our vision is based on the belief that where a student lives while at URI can and should be much more than just a place to sleep. The focus of the Living at URI Vision is providing students with the learning experience of a lifetime—an experience that will both complement and advance their academic preparation. Living at URI whether on-campus or off-campus gives students the opportunity to join a community of students from all parts of the United States and from all over the world. The Department’s goal is to provide students with a variety of living options allowing them to find a home while a student at URI that will allow them to discover new friendships and opportunities, and develop the skills that will prepare them for their future.
