Visit RWU


Connect With Us

We want to get to know you and for you to get to know us!  

We offer a variety of experiences to connect with our campus community and the Office of Admission. Our in-person and virtual offerings are dynamic and designed to provide our visitors with an in-depth look at the RWU experience and give you a sense of what it's like to be an RWU Hawk. We are adding experiences and sessions as we are able to, so please check back frequently, or contact us if you don’t see something that will work for you.

In-Person Experiences

Tour our campus to discover what makes Roger Williams University distinctive. 

Your visit experience includes an Admission Information Session provided by an admission team member and a student-led tour 7 days a week. Please note Sunday offerings are tours only and will not include an information session. 

The 11:30 am tour time will be designated for accepted students beginning February 1. All students are welcome to attend, but the content will be geared specifically toward accepted students. 

We offer extra programming on school vacation weeks, make sure to check out our extra tour times on these days.
