Living on campus at JWU gives you the opportunity to experience the best of Providence in a close-knit community. More than half of students live on campus.

Most of our residence halls are centrally located. The Downcity Campus, in the heart of Providence, houses students from all colleges.

The Harborside Campus, which overlooks Narragansett Bay, primarily houses Culinary Arts students.

Our 13 residence halls offer traditional rooms, suites and apartment community living. Whether you’re looking for a single or a suite, a social whirlwind or a close-knit atmosphere, there’s a hall to meet your needs.

Residential Life also offers a range of programs and leadership opportunities to help you get involved on campus. Contact Residential Life for more information.
