Dear University of Rhode Island Off Campus Residents,
Welcome to your new home off campus! For most of you, this is your first time experiencing true independence. It is a great time in your life and an even better time to learn how to operate on your own.
With this newfound independence, comes newfound fun, opportunity, and responsibility. It is critically important that once moving into your new home, you assimilate properly into your new neighborhood. Your town is not to be thought of as an extension of URI’s campus, but rather as a family community composed of parents, grandparents, and children who choose to live in this area to enjoy Rhode Island’s wonderful amenities. Peace, quiet, and beauty are just a few of those amenities. It’s your responsibility as “the new kid in the neighborhood” to make the initiative to introduce yourself to your neighbors, and offer yourself as a good neighbor who is always respectful and willing to be of service to the community if need be, and to preserve and enhance the amenities that make Narragansett great.
The idea is that the more respectful you are to your neighbors and community, the more respect they will give to you. If at any point during your stay, you decide to do something that others may consider to be disruptive, be sure to run it by your neighbors first to minimize any negative consequences. Most of the time, your neighbors will be understanding and happy that you took the initiative, and therefore be more accepting of whatever activity it is that you’d like to host at your house. Living in this community will be one of the highlights of your life. Be a good neighbor to make the experience a better one for you, and all those who live around you. If you happen to run into any issues during your time off campus, please feel free to reach out to any of the contacts below. Welcome to Narragansett, and enjoy your stay!
