A Home on the Hill

At Brown 74 percent of undergraduates — and all first-year students — live on campus. Our College Hill campus offers a classic New England college experience among brick quadrangles, scenic greens, soaring modern architecture, renovated centuries-old structures, state-of-the-art labs and world-class libraries.

All of this is located in the heart of Providence, Rhode Island’s vibrant capital — known for its innovative arts scene, exceptional culinary offerings and unpretentious vibe. It's easy to get here from Boston and New York City, and our campus is just a 30-minute drive to the beach!
