URI Robert J. Higgins Welcome Center

The Robert J. Higgins Welcome Center seeks to extend a warm invitation to prospective University of Rhode Island students and their families. Consolidating and elevating the visitor experience as well as acting as the “front door” to the campus, it is an interactive, one-story building that will serve roughly 50,000 visitors each year. Given the maturity of the protected Oak trees on-site and the way the building has respectfully nestled near them, the Welcome Center feels as established on the campus as it does refreshingly new. In this way -- and many others -- the design has embraced both the present and future while celebrating URI’s past.
