Commuter Lounge

 RWU's Commuter Lounge is located on the lower level of the Stonewall IV residence hall and is a space dedicated to RWU commuters. It is located near one of the university’s main commuter parking lots, off Lower Old Ferry Road. It provides commuters a comfortable space to meet students, study, or relax between classes. The space is equipped with a TV, lockers, a computer, full refrigerator, and a microwave.

Study and Gathering Spaces

In addition to the Commuter Lounge, there are study and lounge spaces across campus to relax, prepare, or meet with other students between classes. These spaces include:

    North Campus Residence Hall (1st floor snack area, 2nd floor Great Room)
    Global Heritage Hall (Ground floor Starbucks, and spaces throughout building)
    Lower Commons (Dining Hall)
    Hawks’ Nest, in the Recreation Center
    South Campus Lounge in Cedar Hall (pool table and study space)

Health Insurance

Access to health care is often a concern of students and parents as students depart for college. We at Roger Williams University are actively involved in the health and well-being of our students.  All full-time undergraduate commuter students are eligible to be seen at Health Services. Students who do not confirm enrollment or waive coverage by will be automatically enrolled in the student health insurance plan after the effective date.

Please be aware that no refunds will be issued after the deadline.
