The URI Graduate School of Oceanography is located on the University’s 200-acre Narragansett Bay Campus. On Narragansett Bay’s West Passage, with a deep-water pier and easy access to the open Atlantic, the campus offers an ideal location from which to explore the world ocean.
Members of the GSO community meet research challenges that confront the nation and the world. GSO faculty and facilities address such issues as climate change, hurricanes, pollution, fisheries depletion, and the need for new technology for undersea research and exploration.
The campus has grown steadily since the founding of the URI Narragansett Marine Laboratory in 1936. Most recently, construction (see live view) began in November on a new 40,000 square foot building that will house a new Pell Marine research library and the Inner Space Center. Via satellite telecommunication, the Inner Space Center enables researchers and students to monitor, track and disseminate information from oceanographic expeditions and remotely operated vehicles in real time.
