Join us for an open house

RISD invites you and your family to join us at one of our two open house events this spring. These half-day programs feature a series of presentations and discussions led by RISD faculty, staff and students as well as guided tours of the campus. Staff in our Student Financial Services Office will also be available to meet and answer questions about financing a RISD education.

Open house events



Open House

The Open House schedule is as follows:

  • 10:30 – 12:00 | Presentations & discussions | (Woods-Gerry House)
  • 12:00 – 12:30 | Lunch at The Met, our main campus dining hall
  • 12:00 – 2:00 | Guided tours of campus, led by current students (please wear comfortable shoes as our campus is located on a rather steep hill)

Staff in our Financial Aid Office will take individual appointments between 9:00 and 10:00 and again from 2:00 to 4:30 to help families with questions on financing your education. (Contact them at 401 454-6661 or to schedule a discussion.)

On-street parking at metered spaces is generally available nearby. You should be able to find a space within a short walking distance of the Woods-Gerry House. Look along or off of Waterman, Prospect and Angell streets.
