Campus Perks for all Employees

As members of the RISD campus community, employees enjoy access to the perks listed below:


RISD provides several parking lots on campus. Spaces are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Note: RISD’s fee collection program for on-campus parking is currently suspended. However, employees must still obtain a parking tag from Public Safety before parking in a RISD lot or designated on-street space.

Please refer to the RISD Transportation page for additional information.

On-Campus Dining

Employees have access to all on-campus eating facilities, including:

  • The Met (Quad)
  • Portfolio Café (15 Westminster)

  • Carr Haus Café (Carr House)

Athletic Facilities/Fitness Centers at RISD and Brown University

All RISD employees can use the fitness center in RISD’s Catanzaro Student Center at no charge (note: these facilities are staffed by student employees and therefore are not available in the summer months). RISD employees and their dependents may also sign up for a recreational facility (gym) membership at Brown University. Learn more about fitness benefits for employees.
