Campus Housing

From traditional residence halls to architecturally significant buildings, students at Salve Regina have the opportunity to live in a variety of unique housing options situated throughout our historic campus. Ocean views, fireplaces and grand staircases are common features of the University's residential landscape.

Students residing on campus can easily access downtown Newport on foot or via public transportation. Steeped in history, diversity and religious tolerance, today's Newport is a tourist mecca, with shops, restaurants, museums, galleries and sporting events permeating this "City by the Sea."
