Kingston, RI – The University of Rhode Island has launched a $6.3 million renovation of Ranger Hall for the Harrington School of Communication and Media.

DBVW of Providence was hired to program and masterplan a two-phase 90,000sf new communications and media school, as well as lead the design and construction administration stages for the first phase of the school.

The Phase 1 renovation of historic Ranger Hall will create classrooms, editing suites, a recording studio, a film screening room, a social media innovation lab, and other spaces. The building is expected to be ready in the academic year that begins next fall.

A ceremonial wall breaking was held recently to signify the beginning of the project.
