URI Robert J. Higgins Welcome Center

DBVW Architects is working closely with URI to build a new Welcome Center on a prominent site at the main entrance to their campus. The building’s design is informed by the historic Upper College Road site and URI’s tradition of innovation. The new URI Welcome Center will include an open reception area where staff can greet visitors and groups can congregate before or after tours. It will also feature two presentation areas for informational sessions, three offices, three mini-conference rooms, flexible “float” offices for staff to use during the busy season, and a large conference room. Outside, pedestrian-friendly walkways and seating visually and physically connect the building to the heart of the campus.
