Ewing Multicultural Center

Ewing Multicultural Center is home to: 

  • The Office of Intercultural Student Engagement (ID card access from 6 am to 11 pm; Staff hours from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm)

  • The Main Lounge, a bookable space for students and staff.

  • Two patios, with lots of space for gatherings.


The Office of Intercultural Student Engagement (ISE) is located in Ewing Multicultural Center located at 41 Waterman Street. Ewing is a little yellow house overlooking Frazier Terrace and Benefit Street. 


While the Center is home to the ISE offices, the Main Lounge is available for the campus community to reserve, including campus departments, student club/organizations, even gallery shows and temporary installations, particularly programs that promote ISE's principles of diversity celebration and open dialogue.

The staff of ISE strive to make the Ewing Multicultural Center a comfortable, welcoming place for all RISD students and other members of the RISD, Brown, and Providence communities. To that end, we invite people to host events here, come in to watch movies, read or do homework, or just hang out.  We want to do our part to keep our communities safe and healthy.
