Want to be more relaxed? During the summer months, enjoy golf at nearby courses, watch feature yacht races in historic Newport Harbor, sing along at one of the famous music festivals and be part of the action at the International Tennis Hall of Fame. Soak up picturesque Narragansett Bay on the Cliff Walks and see how the rich once lived on the famous Newport Mansion tours.

No multi-day conference would be complete without comfortable lodging. Immerse yourself in breathtaking views of Mount Hope Bay, while staying at one of our residences with a view of the water. Accommodations include televisions, desks, and laundry facilities. Roger Williams University's conference lodging is available from late May through August. If accommodations are needed during the school year, our trained staff can recommend appropriate off-site lodging to meet your needs.
