Welcome to the RWU Waterfront home page. We are excited to bring you waterfront programming to enhance your educational and recreational experience at Roger Williams University. We hope to provide a safe environment for learning, recreation, and a relief from the stresses of being a student, faculty or staff member. If you are a member of the Roger Williams University community, you are encouraged to take part in our programs.

Mission Statement

To promote seamanship and the safe, environmentally conscious use of Mt. Hope Bay by the Roger Williams University community through education and intellectual growth.


The RWU Waterfront is a unique area, and we are just now exploring the possibilities for safe and environmentally conscious use by the campus community. Our programs are all in their infancy so suggestions and ideas are always welcome.
