Family Accommodations and Fees
Accommodations for family members are not included in orientation fees or family program fees. Below we hope to provide families with information about local accommodations, including reduced rates at some hotels and information about staying on campus for an additional fee.
As a reminder, new students will be staying in one of our residence halls for Orientation. Due to the schedule of events, students are not allowed to leave campus during the program, leave early, or stay in another place other than the designated program residence halls. Students coming from a far distance away may check-in the evening before and stay with other out-of-state students. More information about early arrival is available at: www.uri.edu/orientation/early
Reserve a room in Eddy Hall with rates of $40 per night, single occupancy, and $55 per night, double occupancy. Rooms are air-conditioned, arranged suite-style, which means you would have a private bedroom space, and a semi-private bathroom. Additional amenities include wireless internet connection, continental breakfast on Day 2 and an opportunity to experience first-hand one of URI’s residence halls.

Please note: the overnight accommodation fee is payable directly to the Office of Housing and Residence Life and is due in advance (payment by credit card only) when you complete your online reservation. Room fees are separate from the $35 per person orientation program fee. Additionally, parent and student accommodations are completely separate. Students will be accommodated and remain with the new student orientation program.
