Housing & Roommates

Living in the Area

While at the School of Law, some students find living accommodations in downtown Bristol, renting apartments in homes of the Colonial, Federal, and Victorian eras, many of them located near the picturesque Bristol Harbor. The nearby historic towns of Portsmouth, Warren, and Barrington, as well as the East Side of Providence, are also very popular locations for law students to live. 

Each spring, the Office of Admissions gathers rental listings from local landlords. We update our list of apartments in the Bristol area at least once a week from early May through the first day of Orientation.

Roommate Listings

If you are interested in sharing living expenses, this roommate resource list will be helpful. Our roommate referral list is updated weekly starting in April. To be included on the roommate referral list , complete the roommate list signup form. There are also roommate requests from current law students in the rental listings.  You may also call 800-633-2727 to participate in this service.
