Perkins Hall

Perkins Hall

My best memories are from late at night when I'm trying to procrastinate doing work. Since everyone leaves their doors open, I stop by, say hi, and catch up with people I haven't seen in a few days or so. Great conversations happen about almost anything and everything when you're with the people you live with.

Built in 1960, Perkins Hall was originally constructed by Bryant College and named Gardner Hall. Brown bought the building in 1969, when Bryant moved to Smithfield, Rhode Island. In 1974, the building was renamed as Perkins Hall in honor of Judge Fred B. Perkins '19. Today, the building houses near entirely second-year students, with the only singles in the building used to house Counselors.
