Princeton University is a private Ivy League research university located in Princeton, New Jersey. It's most well-known for its undergraduate and graduate programs in the humanities, social sciences and natural sciences.
University College is Princeton's largest residential college by undergraduate enrollment with 1,100 students living on campus. The college was founded in 1748 as part of the original 10 colleges established at the time when colonial New Jersey was first settled by European colonists. Students who live in UCo are known as “Colonials” or “Cols” for short — this nickname has been around since the 1700s!
Students can find off campus housing within walking distance from campus or even closer if they're willing to bike or take public transportation instead of driving their own cars into town every day (and paying high gas prices).
University College is a member of the Ivy League and offers students opportunities to participate in some of the most prestigious academic competitions in the country, including Model UN and Mock Trial.
University College is located on the north side of Princeton University's campus, near a variety of other residential colleges. It's just across from Palmer Square, which is home to a number of restaurants, bars and shops.
