Hillel is the Jewish Student Center at the University of Rhode Island. Our building is located at 6 Fraternity Circle but our activities take place throughout campus and in the community. Hillel creates a warm and caring atmosphere where students are encouraged and empowered to explore Judaism in ways that are meaningful to them. We offer a full array of social, cultural, religious, community service and Israel related programming, as well as leadership development opportunities. Hillel is recognized and acclaimed by the URI administration as one of the most active and dynamic organizations on campus. URI Hillel was honored with the Indispensable Campus Partner Award for inspiring the University community as a campus leader on diversity, tolerance and multiculturalism. The 5,000 square foot Norman M. Fain Hillel Center opened in 2010 and is a resource to the entire campus, offering a home away from home for students and ideal space for socializing, programming and activities.
