College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I do not know how off campus housing is so I cannot really answer anything about it

College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: I mostly dine at on-campus locations, and rarely go anywhere outside of there.

College Sophomore

Party Scene: I do not go to parties so I do not know about the party scene.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: It is a sort of hassle to go through the process but its been smooth. I just wish that they would give more financial aid if need calls for it.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: I do not have the meal plans but I have eaten at the dining halls and other on campus locations, and its all delicious and I look forward to eating.

College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I do not live on campus.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: When it rains it floods the dorms at the bottom of the hill.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: not much closer than 25min

3 College Freshman

Administration: You cannot party in the dorms you will get caught

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I received a merit scholarship

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: i dont go because there off campus

2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The housing is very tight and most people are tripled, the food is horrible, and there is nothing to do on campus for fun.

3 College Student

Off-Campus Housing: the pros are freedom from dorm life and a sense of comfort living in your own space. the pricing is usually convenient while landlords are sometime strict or do not care depending on who you get. the cons of living off campus is the parking and traffic you have to deal with coming to class everyday. the parking off campus has gotten worse because the parking ban that took place in eastward because of the cars that need to fit in a driveway

4 College Student

Off-Campus Dining: there are several places to go eat such as crazy burger, moss, rhody joes or charlie'os that have good food at somewhat relatively good prices that give the students a break from on campus eating. for some its not convenient if you live in certain parts of Narragansett or on campus

3 College Student

Administration: some policies they are good at such as the honor code and noise but other things such as parking and drinking, they are either not strict enough or too strict

3 College Student

Scholarships: I did receive a scholarship from URI but besides not very good financial aid, two of my brothers go here and my family did receive any discount or help from URI

3 College Student

Party Scene: The party scene for most is pretty good but they are often off campus so those on campus have to find a dd or sleep off campus for the night until they can get a ride back in the morning. uber has helped with kids getting rides to and from parties safely. but if you not into the party scene than the nightlife is a little boring. also some parties on campus get broken up by RAs but not so much in the suite style dorms where RAs do not always come around

4 College Student

Campus Food: For the most part, they try and give us options with specials at the sandwich station and homestyle but after a while it becomes boring/bland. I do like that there are unlimited swipes at the basic level but since butterfield closed, the basic plans can not eat anywhere but hope and at night at the rams den. I do enjoy that ram card and hungry rhody allows us to get food other than dining hall food to spice it up.

Campus Housing: for the most part living on campus is fair. I like being able to wake up and walk to class rather than waking up earlier to drive in and find a spot. the parking is terrible so if you leave campus it could cause you trouble to find a spot when you come back. the building are kept in okay shape, some better than others.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The emporium at the top of campus has a range of foods from pizza to chinese to mexican. They accept the Ram Account and it is very affordable and convenient.

4 College Freshman

Administration: The strictness is just enough here. The dorm policies exist but they are not enforced to any extremes, most students are very respectful of this. The policies in the classrooms are very similar, teachers give rules but base how strict they are on the respect of the students.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

URI is a school with two identities: It is a place to learn and a place to party. The University offers students many options in the classroom, which leads to many options in life. Students here know the importance of being motivated and focused and are dedicated to getting the best out of their four (or more) years of college. At URI, you will find an atmosphere that is extremely well balanced when it comes to work and play. If URI students learn two things while they are here, they learn how to succeed and how to have a good time. Most students are happy with their choice of making URI their home for higher education.

Students agree that there is an equal balance of academics and social life, and they are expected to do well and are given many opportunities to succeed. The biggest part of college is learning to adjust and knowing what is out there. URI is a friendly environment, and most students are happy here. Academics are the biggest challenge, and getting into the right classes is often an obstacle. There are a lot of organizations and events that engage students throughout the year. Overall, students have a positive experience at URI, and there’s definitely something for everyone to enjoy.
