Baypoint Residential Community

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.

Living at Baypoint


  • Baypoint Residential Community merges hotel-style living with the experience of university housing.
  • A shuttle bus that runs about every 30-minutes between the hours of 7am and 2am on weekdays, and about every hour from 10:30am to 2am on the weekends.
  • Baypoint is RWU's only residential community with its own dining and workout facilities. That means you can wake up, work out, and get breakfast or lunch without having to leave your community. Baypoint dining features a restaurant-style menu; once you swipe in and order your meal it is then brought to you by one of our friendly dining staff members. The dining menu is also constantly changing as an attempt to continuously meet the needs and tastes of Baypoint residents.
  • Each room has its own private bathroom.
  • Each room has double-sized beds.
  • All rooms are carpeted, have individual heating and air conditioning controls and are equipped with data and cable TV ports. Each resident is provided one desk, one dresser and one built-in or movable closet.

  • Common study space at Baypoint provides students with a quiet place to study outside of their rooms.
  • The common lounge space at Baypoint has a large screen TV, billiards, and foosball table.
