The Office of Intercultural Student Engagement (ISE) is located in Ewing Multicultural Center located at 41 Waterman Street. Ewing is a small little yellow house tucked away by a lush landscape 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 Main Lounge is Ewing Multicultural Center’s largest programming space and is able to accommodate up to 30-40 comfortably, and more if primarily used for standing room. There is a full kitchen available and the room may be configured with furniture any way you like. Complete audio/visual display is also available through the use of a laptop computer. If using A/V, you must furnish your own laptop. The use of the patio may also enlarge this space. 


Ewing Multicultural Center includes a variety of available spaces for the campus including two outdoor patio spaces, perfect for an escape from the hustle and bustle of our urban campus. Enjoy your lunch on the patio overlooking Frazier Terrace or head up to the back patio for a more secluded spot surrounded by tall vines and trees. 

The RISD community is also welcome to utilize our Resource Room, located on the ground floor.  This space is open during business hours (Monday - Friday, 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m) and is stocked with many resouces available to either take or loan.
