During the first year of its existence, the college operated in the town of Elizabeth, then for nine years it was transported to Newark, and only in 1756 he moved to Princeton and housed in the new building of Nassau Hall, built on land donated by Nathaniel Fitzrandolf. The college has been located in the Nassau building for almost half a century. In 1896, when, after expanding the list of educational programs, the College of New Jersey received university status, it was officially renamed Princeton University, in honor of its Princeton. Four years later, in 1900, a high school was opened at Princeton University with graduate and postgraduate programs.
