Campus Profile

Rhode Island College is located three miles from the downtown district of Providence on an attractive 180-acre campus, which includes 51 buildings and features various athletic and recreational facilities. The State's famous saltwater beaches are only 50 minutes from Providence, and Boston is only an hour's drive away. Providence is the home of the nationally known Trinity Square Repertory Company and the RI Philharmonic Orchestra. The Rhode Island School of Design's museum is one of the best of its kind in the country. The Dunkin Donut's Center and the Providence Performing Arts Center host musical, theatre and sporting events.

As a leading regional public college, Rhode Island College personalizes higher education of the finest quality for undergraduate and graduate students. We offer vibrant programs in arts and sciences, business and professional disciplines within a supportive, respectful and diverse community.

Campus Location - Rhode Island College is located on a 180-acre park-like campus in the Mount Pleasant section of Providence. This location combines a suburban atmosphere with easy access to the benefits and resources of the metropolitan area.

Helpful Information - Rhode Island College is small enough to be a "big fish" in a little pond, but large enough to have the full College experience. Classroom sizes for the most part are small, allowing the faculty and students to really know each other and learn the material.
