The Bayside Courts offer a unique style of on-campus housing to its nearly 500 residents. Here, students get the opportunity experience apartment-style living while still residing on main campus. Seabreeze (south building), Tidewater (middle building) and Whitecap (north building) are the three identical buildings that make up our Bayside Courts complex. Each of the three “U’s,” as we call them, is made up of 44 apartments, including 8 quints (5-person, three-bedroom apartments), 28 quads (4-person, two-bedroom apartments), or 6 doubles (2-person, one bedroom apartments). Each apartment is equipped with a kitchenette including electric range stove and full refrigerator, a dining/living area (complete with table and chairs), private storage area and private bathroom. Each apartment is also air conditioned, fully carpeted (except for the tile in the kitchen and bathroom) and have cable/data access. There is also a custodial staff to assist with the cleaning of the bathrooms but custodians only visit each apartment about twice a month.
Exclusive to this living area, Bayside Court apartments is RWU’s only housing option that gives residents direct access to their living areas from the outside. Each “U” also has a laundry facility and a courtyard that faces Mount Hope Bay. We encourage you to use the courtyards to play some Frisbee, read a book or throw some burgers on one of the provided grills. You could even bring your own charcoal grill (instant match-lit only) if you have one! The whole complex, including the courtyard, has access to wireless internet so you could also sit outside and just do homework.
Not sure you’re ready to start cooking for yourself quite yet? While you will have your own private kitchen, we still offer the opportunity for residents to partake in the University's dining plan. Board options for this area range from full board plans to the 125 Block Plan, an option designed especially for apartment style residents.
The staff of the Bayside Courts is comprised of one Coordinator of Residence Education (CORE), one Head Resident Assistant (HRA), and 11 Resident Assistants (RA). The Coordinator of Residence Education serves to oversee the day-to-day operation of the complex, including supervision of the residence hall staff. There are 4 RA’s per “U,” with two living in the north wing and two living in the south wing.
