Office of Residential Life


The Office of Residential Life is responsible for maintaining student residences which support the educational mission of Brown University and are designed to provide a variety of learning opportunities that promote students' academic endeavors, and which encourage their growth and development. The Office of Residential Life at Brown recognizes that learning is not solely academic in nature. A large part of learning inevitably takes place outside the classroom. We are committed to supporting that learning through the residential experiences we provide.

At Brown, we recognize that personal growth and development are largely the result of student interactions within an extraordinarily diverse environment of people and programs. The Office of Residential Life is committed to providing students with a safe, comfortable and well-maintained living space in an academically enriching environment.
