Community Spaces at RISD

A person's faith and religious life can be a significant part of their identity. ISE is committed to assisting those who wish to continue their religious/spiritual practices while at RISD. We provide resources to help members of the RISD community connect with their religious community in the Providence area.

Please connect with our office if you would like accommodations for observing a specific holiday,

or if you have an idea for religious/spiritual programming!

Brown University has many religious and spiritual offerings that are available to RISD students. 

Reflection Room
Homer Hall 358

The Reflection Room is available to all RISD students,

faculty and staff so that they may have a quiet space on

campus for prayer, meditation, reflection, or a moment

away from the bustle of campus and studio. Open 24/7,

the room has been designed in a way that instills a sense

of calmness in the individual.

Please contact ise@risd.edu if you have any questions.

Ewing Lounge Resources

Feel free to enjoy our Resources in the Ewing Community Lounge! Our shelves are full of media with topics focused on different identities. We encourage the RISD community to read the books and watch the films. If you take a book or movie, please bring it back when you are done so others can enjoy them.
