Welcome to the City of Providence
The Biggest City
in the Smallest State
We like to think of the city of Providence as an extension of our campus. But Providence is anything but your run-of-the-mill college town. It’s a city in the fullest sense of the word. Spend the morning shopping on the historic East Side. Experience the amazing art scene with an afternoon stroll through the many local galleries. Take in a movie or concert from national bands that make local tour stops. Or, travel a little farther afield and enjoy music festivals, hiking and biking trails, and some of the best beaches in the Northeast.
