Founded in 1764 as the College of Rhode Island
in the town of Warren, Brown University was the
seventh in a series of Colonial higher-learning
institutions that now make up the Ivy League. The
university moved to its current location overlooking
Providence on College Hill in 1770 and was
renamed in 1804 in recognition of a $5,000 gift
from prominent businessman and alumnus Nicholas
Brown. Today, the Brown campus, consisting of
235 buildings on 143 acres, is a tapestry of American
architectural styles from pre-Colonial to modern.
In Brown University, the newest volume in
our acclaimed Campus Guide series, Raymond P.
Rhinehart (class of ‘62) takes readers on nine
architectural walks to more than one hundred
campus landmarks—from the red-bricked University
Hall (1770) to the state-of-the-art Warren
Alpert Medical School (2001). With students,
alumni, and visitors in mind, the guide showcases
the role that Brown has played in the history
of campus architecture and the developing urban
fabric of Providence.
