One of the most stunning aspects of our campus is that we’re located on the shores of Mt. Hope Bay. Well, our residence halls are no different! In fact, 42% of our rooms have a view of the bay. Once you soak up the view, you’ll find, however, that the best part of living on campus is the company you get to share with your friends and neighbors.
Our residence halls offer a variety of living options, including single rooms, doubles, triples, and even a few quads and quints. We also have a number of apartment and suite-style living arrangements.
Below is a list of our residence halls:
