Relocating to Attend IYRS
The majority of our students relocate from other states, and even other countries, to attend IYRS each year. IYRS provides housing information as a courtesy to assist students in their search for accommodations that fit their needs. IYRS does not offer on-campus housing but does assist students in identifying housing options. Students are responsible for locating and vetting housing arrangements that meet their needs.
Because of Rhode Island's small size making for comparatively short commutes, IYRS students live both in Newport and in surrounding communities on Aquidneck Island, as well as on the mainland which is just fifteen minutes from campus.
Housing Assistance for IYRS Students
Many of our students choose to live with other IYRS students. Enrolled students will be invited to join a private online group to help facilitate housing connections.
