Connecting as a Commuter

At Roger Williams University, we want all of our students to be involved.  Every single one of our athletic teams, intramurals, club sports, clubs and organizations are open to all students -- whether they live on campus or commute to it. In addition, we encourage all of our commuter students to take advantage of lounges and study spaces across campus, including the lounge dedicated to commuters on the lower level of Stonewall IV. Other lounges can be found in North Campus Residence Hall, Global Heritage Hall and tons of spots in between. There are opportunities for studying, involvement or just hanging out at every turn!

    Commuter Lounge

     RWU's Commuter Lounge on the lower level of the Stonewall IV residence hall is a brand new space dedicated to RWU commuters. The lounge is located near one of the university’s main commuter parking lots, off Lower Old Ferry Road. It provides commuters a dedicated space to meet and socialize and just hang out between classes. The space has a tv, lockers, a computer, full fridge, and a microwave.

    Other Campus Locations & Facilities

    Commuter students at RWU are encouraged to take advantage of all that the University has to offer -- from our 8000 + sq-foot Rec Center and our waterfront kayaks and sailing lessons to our dining facilities and lounges across campus as well as library facilities in Bristol and Providence.

    RWU Library

    Roger Williams University Library is home to the Learning Commons as well as many computers for student use.


    RWU Intercultural Center

    The Intercultural Center is located in the heart of campus and is a home away from home for many of our students. Complete with a lounge and communal kitchen, the Intercultural Center is a great place for meeting new friends, learning more about how to get involved and spend some downtime.
