Yes, great beach community, it is NOT the municipal “home “ of URI, however it is the off campus epicenter of student rental housing in South County. The muni home of URI is South Kingstown. The hamlet of Kingston is the campus location. The academic year student housing brings many economic benefits however for some pockets in various sections, the student housing brings an element undesirable behaviors that negatively impact full time residents.

Boston Globe’s #1 New England Beach Town lives up to its name. Good surf, great food, amazing views. From the Pt. Judith Lighthouse to nature trails around town, Narragansett is beautiful and amazing in every way.
Beautiful beach town with excellent student life during the school year. Easy access to campus, and plenty of outdoor recreation opportunities.
