Narragansett Bay Campus

URI's Narragansett Bay Campus consists of approximately 20 URI buildings that contain a mix of offices, research labs, classrooms, and meeting spaces. There is a total of roughly 300,000 square feet of built space, about half of which is contained in six major buildings: Horn Laboratory, South Laboratory, Watkins Laboratory, Center for Atmospheric Chemistry Studies, Coastal Institute, and Ocean Science and Exploration Center which houses administrative offices for the Dean of the Graduate School of Oceanography (GSO), the Claiborne Pell Marine Science Library, the National Sea Grant Library, and the Inner Space Center.

Other notable features of the Narragansett Bay Campus include a facility that provides continuous running seawater to the Ann Gall Durbin Marine Research Aquarium, Ark Annex to the Aquarium, and Luther Blount Aquaculture Laboratory; the Equipment Development Lab, which provides design, fabrication, and test capabilities for scientists; a large geological samples storage facility; a dock for the  RV Endeavor and a small boat facility; and numerous specialized research facilities for physical and numerical modeling of large-scale ocean circulation or earth mantle behavior.

In addition, the URI Department of Ocean Engineering is located on the campus, with federal Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) laboratories bordering on the north. The Narragansett Bay Campus also serves as homeport for GSO's research vessel,  R/V Endeavor, with a pier located along the campus waterfront. The R/V Endeavor pier allows for efficient staging of cruises and easy access to the open ocean, only a few miles south of the campus.

In total, nearly 300 faculty, marine research scientists, graduate students, and administrative, professional, technical, and support staff comprise the GSO community at the Narragansett Bay Campus.
