It moved in 1770 to its present location on College Hill, overlooking the city of Providence. In 1804, in recognition of a gift from Nicholas Brown, the College of Rhode Island was renamed Brown University. The first women were admitted in 1891, when the establishment of the Women’s College marked the beginning of eighty years of a coordinate structure for educating women within the University. Later known as Pembroke College, the women’s college merged with Brown in 1971.
