Campus Tours and Information Sessions

Our summer visit calendar begins June 9 and runs through August 22, 2014. We encourage you to register in advance for both a Campus Tour and an Admission Information Session so that you can make the most of your visit.

Our Rhody Connection System

If you have never registered for an event in our Rhody Connection System, you need to create a Rhody Connection account. The process is easy and allows you to change your plans at any time.

You may already be in our Rhody Connection System if you completed any of the following:

  1. A green sheet completed at a campus visit
  2. A white card from a URI Admission Representative completed at a high school visit or college fair
  3. Information from a college fair that used scanners to monitor attendance
  4. Our online form to request information

How to create a Rhody Connection Account

  1. Click the gold button below to "View the Calendar & Register Now"
  2. Choose "Login," which is above the calendar to the right
  3. Under “New Users,” complete the online form using the student e-mail in the "Create Username" field and create a custom password using the instructions online

Passwords are private and we cannot retrieve them for you, but you can reset yours at any time. Each student has only one account so it is important that students share their custom password with a parent and/or guardian so that they can use the system, too.

If you discover that you are already in our Rhody Connection System:

  1. Under "Returning User," choose "Reset Password"
  2. Enter your e-mail address (which is your Rhody Connection Username)
  3. We will send you an e-mail with a link to create ("reset") a custom password

With a Rhody Connection account, you and/or a parent or guardian can register for a campus visit, reschedule your plans, update your personal profile, and register for special events and online chats. Online instructions guide you through the registration process.


Campus Tours

All campus tours are walking tours led by student tour guides ready to give you a first-hand view of our beautiful campus (approximately 90 minutes). We are always prepared for rain or shine—please dress for comfort!

Please be sure to check the calendar carefully when you register. Most weekdays, tours leave at 10:00 a.m., 12:30 p.m., and 2:00 p.m. from the Admission Tour Booth in the Memorial Union. 

Admission Information Sessions

At URI, our Information Sessions give an overview of the academic and other opportunities available to students. Each presenter is a professional member of admission team who will also provide you with important details about the application process specific to URI (approximately 45 minutes).  Admission Information Sessions are held most weekdays at 11:45 a.m. 

You will also hear from current students who share their personal perspectives on student life, academics, and all aspects of the URI experience.

Please check the calendar carefully. On our busiest days, we offer separate Admission Information Sessions for high school juniors and admitted seniors. We encourage transfer applicants to attend the junior sessions. Although these Information Sessions on our busiest days are tailored to juniors or seniors, our Campus Tours may include juniors, seniors, and transfer students.

We are closed on the following dates for holidays and special events on campus:

  • Friday, July 4
  • Monday, August 11
