Welcome Center

​New location for RIC Campus Police

Please be aware that the Department of Safety And Security & Campus Police is no longer housed in Browne Hall. Its new home is the Welcome Center located near the east (Mount Pleasant Avenue) entrance to campus.

Along with the new facilities, the Department of Safety and Security & Campus Police has a new telephone number: (401) 456-8888 (ext. 8888 if you are calling on campus).​

The main goal and purpose of the Campus Police Department, located on the Ground Level of Browne Hall, is to provide service and protection to The Rhode Island College campus, properties, staff, faculty, visitors, and students.​​​

Working with Student Services, Residential Life, Physical Plant and others in our on-campus community, we are an integrated team striving to achieve excellence in police protection and to ensure a high quality of student-faculty life by promoting a tranquil, safe atmosphere conducive to the objectives of the College. The department is dedicated to the protection of the College properties to ensure the beauty, security, and safe function of the campus grounds and r​esources.

We encourage you to review information about campus crime as it applies to Rhode Island College.
