On-campus housing is provided for undergraduate students. If you are arriving prior to international student orientation, please visit Discover Newport to find accommodations.
Salve Regina does not offer graduate housing. If you are a graduate student, you will need to find accommodations off campus. You may wish to look at the real estate listings for Newport on craigslist, Apartment List or Apartment Search.
You should anticipate paying at least $600-$700 per month excluding utilities (electric, gas, cable, phone) if you are sharing an apartment. If you choose to live by yourself in a furnished apartment, anticipate paying at least $1,200 per month excluding utilities.

Salve Regina students dress casually for classes. Attire varies from shorts, T-shirts, skirts and thin blouses for hot weather to long trousers, jeans, warm shirts, jackets and coats for cold weather. There are special occasions for which formal attire is needed. For example, some students wear business attire for classroom presentations.
