One of the most stunning aspects of our campus is that we’re located on the shores of Mt. Hope Bay. Well, our residential communities 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 residential communities 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.
Floor plans and diagrams for our Residential Communities can be accessed here.
Below is a list of our residential communities:
The Almeida Residential Community is located two miles away from the main campus and provides housing for returning students. Almeida consists of three large, separate buildings of three-and-four-person apartments, as well as two additional buildings called the Flats and Townhouses.
The Baypoint Residential Community is primarily RWU’s sophomore-specific living area and combines a hotel living experience with university housing. Equipped with its own dining hall, it is located one mile over the Mt. Hope Bridge in Portsmouth and open to any returning student.
Bayside is an apartment-style residential community for returning students. As the name suggests, Bayside is a great location by the water and offers residents easy access to a view of Mount Hope Bay and the shell path.
Cedar Residential Community is a traditional-styled residence hall that houses first-year students. This community is home to the South Campus Lounge, a recreational and study space that is also accessible to students in Maple, Stonewall, and Willow communities.
Centrally located, the Maple Residential Community is the ideal location for first year students who want to be right in the middle of the campus life.
Boasting a chic and trendy look and beautiful views of the Mt. Hope Bay and athletic fields, this 120,000 square-foot facility is our newest residential community and offers suites, apartments and traditional room options for returning students.
Stonewall Residential Community is home to a mix of students from all years. This community is made up of four separate buildings, in a suite style arrangement and is also the location of our Honors Living Learning Community (LLC).
Willow Residential Community is located just yards from Mount Hope Bay and offers some of the most stellar views of the Bay and the Mount Hope Bridge. This community is open to all students in a standard unit or townhouse setting.
