Salve Regina has a thriving international community representing more than 20 countries, and international students choose us for many of the same reasons that U.S. students do. Here's why:

Great Teaching

Our 13:1 student-faculty ratio and average class size of 19 creates a quality academic experience that ranks Salve Regina among U.S. News & World Report’s top tier regional universities and “Best in the Northeast” by Princeton Review.

Great Location

Salve Regina is located in Newport, Rhode Island, a historic seaport community less than two hours from Boston that is known for its jazz and folk festivals, International Tennis Hall of Fame and longtime association with the America's Cup regatta.

Great Facilities

The University sits on seven 19th-century estates overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. The campus is home to the Pell Center for International Relations and Public Policy and two newly renovated academic centers offering the best in technology-supported classrooms, science labs, art studios and performance spaces.

Great Activities

We have more than 60 student organizations, performance groups, honor societies and intercollegiate athletic teams. Every Salve Regina student also participates in at least 10 hours of community service.

Great Minds

Alongside our talented faculty, we host distinguished speakers on campus, such as Harvard-trained neuroscientist Lisa Genova, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Sonia Nazario, and David McCullough, bestselling author and recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

Great Family

Our University community welcomes people of all beliefs. We have an active network of 18,000 alumni working for small businesses, schools, major international companies, hospitals, charities and organizations around the world.
