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.
Campus Location - Rhode Island College is located in a suburban area in the cities of Providence and North Providence. The campus is surrounded by a golf course and wooded area all around the rest of the campus.
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.
