Students engaging on campus
What We Do

The Office of Student Life offers opportunities that aim to inspire and ground students in the possibility that the classroom can be anywhere.

Contact Information

The Office of Student Life views our students as assets to the culture of Rhode Island College, and as such celebrates the collective success and mutual aid that shared wisdom can cultivate.  

How We Assist Students

Our office is positioned to support students as they navigate their educational experience, and provide multiple touch points and space for students to deepen their social interactions.

Centers and Areas We Manage

This office oversees student services provided by:

  • The Unity Center
  • Military Resource Center
  • Student Activities
  • Student Union

We work to see out students as their whole selves and challenge the notion that students are passive consumers. Working closely with Student Community Government, our student organizations, and student leaders, we prioritize and value student centered learning, student led initiatives and most importantly, student voice. 


H.O.P.E. Line

Do you feel distressed? Do you wish to speak with someone? Please call the 24/7. The H.O.P.E. line is in addition to the counseling center and has been established to provide continuous support to our campus community. Please note that if you are in need of immediate support, please dial 911 and proceed to your local emergency room.
