University of Rhode Island officials say internal auditors are investigating several complaints regarding the school's Department of Housing and Residential Life.
URI spokeswoman Linda Acciardo tells The Providence Journal the complaints were made through anonymous calls to the school's Ethics Hotline beginning last November.
Acciardo says the complaints involve administrative and management issues. She declined to comment further on the specifics of the complaints because the investigation remains active.
The complaints were also reported to the state Office of Internal Audit.
According to the Department of Housing and Residential Life's website, approximately 6,200 students live in 21 undergraduate residence halls, three undergraduate apartment complexes and one graduate apartment complex.
