Brown University Photos

Brown University sits on a hill overlooking Providence, RI. Brown campus occupies a mixture of modern & heritage buildings, many of them former mansions along an urban street grid. Part of the Ivy League, Brown was founded in 1764, and is the seventh oldest University in the United States. Brown was the first to open its doors to all religious faiths and first admitted women in 1891 through Pembroke College. The Brown family which funded the early institution made their initial fortune in textile mills. Adjacent to Brown, are historic districts like Benefit Street.
