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.

Beautiful beach town with excellent student life during the school year. Easy access to campus, and plenty of outdoor recreation opportunities.
Beautiful spot with plenty of local businesses and fun things to do year round. It does get crowded with tourists in the summer, but it is so gorgeous it is not unexpected. The beach does give priority to residents but they welcome everyone.
