Get to College Hill on time and in high spirits with information on directions, transportation options, and nearby hotels and other housing.

Getting Here

Arriving by Train

The Providence train station is served by Amtrak and the Massachusetts Bay Transit Authority (MBTA), which provides service between Boston and Providence. The station is a short walk or taxi ride to campus.


There are many hotels in Providence and nearby Warwick that are convenient to the University. Please remember to book a room early, as they sell out fast for Commencement weekend.
