URI Townhouses Condo Information

General Details

The URI townhouses are conveniently located at 58 Fortin Rd, directly behind the Alumni Center and Dunkin Donuts on top of campus. They are only 125 yards to the Quad and student classrooms as well as being across the street from the Emporium, a collection of shops and eateries.

The university is in the middle of a growth explosion, as is evidenced by the many new facilities on campus that are either now on-line or about to come on-line. The growth and great facilities have led to many more students wanting to attend URI and live on campus for more than just their freshmen year. The problem is there is not enough housing on campus to accommodate the need. Traditionally, students have been forced to live off campus up to 10 miles away in an area referred to as “down-the-line”. Down-the-line housing is usually summer cottages that have been inadequately converted for winter use.

We now have a solution to that problem, the chance for a few wise parents to have their kids live on campus during their education at URI. Just think about it…wouldn’t it be great if you did not have to move your kids belongings in and out multiple times during the academic year. Just do it once! Some other benefits of living in a townhouse on campus include:

  • Walk to class
  • Own parking space
  • No car required
  • Live with your friends
  • No meal plan required
  • Meets fire codes

Tenant (Student) Testimonials

Hello Zach, From very grateful hearts…Thanks for giving all four of us a great year! Hope to see you around next semester, and have a great summer!

Hello Zach, Here’s just a little card to show you how appreciative I am. I am very thankful you have been working with me and continue to do so. All the hard work you have put into the house looks great and really shows! I hope all is going well and will see you soon! Thank you for everything! All the best!

Hi Zach, I loved living in the townhouses! It was the perfect transition between a dorm and moving off campus, because you got to live on your own but did not have to commute. You get all of the independence that comes along with not living on campus, but all of the convenience of being able to walk to class.

Hi Zach, here is something for your website! Being a sophomore I of course did not want to live in the dorms again but my parents were hesitant about me moving off campus. Finding the condos was a great medium. I had all the luxury of living off campus, my car, my own room, living with friends, and the best, no RA, AND I was still with-in walking distance to all my classes. Also, my roommates and I made great friends with our condo neighbors and we had a great time hanging in our condo community. Living in the condos was an amazing experience!

Zach, I would be more than happy to write a testimonial. Living at the condos over the summer I had a better experience with Zach as my landlord than with any other landlord I’ve had in the past. The condos were clean and well maintained…All around good living experience.

Hello Zach, My experience living in the condos, this summer was unlike anything I had ever experienced. It had an amazing location, with laundry services right outside the door and plenty of dining options. Paying rent was also easy and hassle free which was great because it was my first time living on my own. And the condition of the furniture and house were all great. Once again thank you for the great summer.

Zach, Living in the condos on the top of campus sophomore year was such a great experience. The condos are well taken care of and a perfect area to live for college students. It is also a prime location because you are no longer in dorms but are close enough to still walk to campus and save money on gas. A reserved parking spot in front of your condo was also a great plus so you do not have to pay for URI parking, and always walk across campus to your car!

Hey Zach! Thanks once again, your services for housing and parking are easily the best on campus. See you in the fall!
