Salve Regina's 80-acre campus is one of the most unique in the country, offering what the National Trust for Historic Preservation has described as a "tour of the great architectural works of the Gilded Age." The campus is set on seven contiguous estates and features more than 20 historic structures that have been sensitively adapted to meet University needs while also preserving their status as treasures of the 19th and early 20th centuries.
The ocean-side setting, however, offers more than a glimpse of the past. Surrounded by rare trees, tide pools and museums, the campus provides access to exceptional learning opportunities for students in many disciplines.
Viewed as a "living laboratory," Salve Regina's campus is an extraordinary environment that enriches the city of Newport and contributes to the artistic, cultural, economic, educational and historical vitality of the state of Rhode Island.
