Week 0 to prepare you for Week 1
(Register today!)

We are excited to welcome you all to URI, and we know you are eager to learn more about our campus and the beautiful surrounding area. We have a wide variety of events planned for you from September 1–8, 2023.

Our goal is to keep you engaged with fun activities as you wait for your first week of classes to begin. This will allow you to be social in a safe way while learning about the new norms on campus.

These events are intended for new students to campus only. If you have any questions, please feel free to email rhode2ram@uri.edu.

  • Once you have signed up for URInvolved, you can access all O-Week Events by clicking the Events tab at the top left of the page.
  • To register for an event, click into the event, and RSVP by clicking and submitting “I will be attending.
  • Each event is first-come, first-served, however, many events are repeated throughout the week to allow students that move in later the opportunity to participate.
  • Feel free to register for as many events as you wish! Upon registration, you will be sent an RSVP Confirmation email with an option to add your events to your Google Calendar.
  • Space for events is limited. If you wish to cancel an event or change your time, open the event, and update your RSVP to “I won’t be attending.”
    Changing your RSVP will allow for other students to participate.
