The transportation between Harboside and Downcity is generally very convenient. Sometimes there are issues with the buses filling up and and not coming on time but not too often. The public transportation in Providence is also pretty convenient but it can be pretty unsafe as well. If you wanted to do long-distance traveling I would suggest getting a Zip car or riding on the train. Neither are very expensive.

The off campus housing varies fairly greatly. It all just depends on where the housing is located. You have to be very careful as to what area of Providence to live in because there are a lot of bad areas that you wouldn't want to get into.

Health & Safety:
The safety on campus is awful. You can't was a block from the dorms without being in an unlit, sketchy area. The campus security are not very prevalent and when they were there they didn't seem to be paying much attention. Every safety problem thinkable occurred on/at JWU. The safety problems were a big factor in my decision to transfer from JWU.

The nightlife at JWU was always a big deal. Many people would go out everyday of the week. There were many clubs and bars within a 5 minute walking distance. Most of them weren't too expensive and nearly all served underage patrons. The fraternities were pretty far from campus however and were actually in a pretty dangerous area. There also seemed to be a lot of problems with rape at parties.

The best part about JWU is their on campus dining. They have three different dining halls that serve different food and have a variety of options in each. They have two "restaurant style" dining options which serve Italian and burgers. They are both open pretty late which is convenient. Another big plus is that there are three Starbucks on campus and they are all on the meal plan. I found myself in Starbucks more often than in any of the other dining options. The only problem I found with JWU's meal plan was that there was a restriction to only 3 meals per day. That meant that, often, students had trouble using up all of their swipes by the end of the term.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
