Student life is all about balance, and this is something that the University of Rhode Island strongly believes in and encourages its students towards. URI understands the importance of obtaining and striving towards a strong academic education, but at the same time believes that students’ time at university is an opportunity to develop social and interpersonal skills, as well as get involved in and feel part of the community. With over 100 officially recognised student organizations, URI makes getting involved in extracurricular activities very easy.
The University’s main campus is located in the town of Kingston in southern Rhode Island and offers its own student accommodation. Over 91% of URI students live in the residence halls, which allows them to socialise with other students in common living spaces while also feeling the security of living on campus. It is therefore no surprise that students from over 66 nations across the globe have chosen URI as the place to carry out their higher education and to take their next step towards their chosen career path.
