At Brown, we recognize that a large part of personal growth and development inevitably takes place outside of the classroom. This is the result of intentional programs and services as well as myriad interpersonal interactions with members of the Brown community. As such, living on campus is critically important to the overall educational experience. Students will benefit from guidance and support from their interconnected community of peer scholars as well as several peer counselors who live in the residence halls and interact with faculty and deans to create a vibrant living and learning environment.
In order to benefit fully from Brown's exceptional learning environment, undergraduates are required to live in on-campus housing through semester 6. Exceptions to Brown’s residential policy are granted in 12-month increments to Resumed Undergraduate Education (RUE) students, married students living with their spouse locally, and students living with their parent(s) locally. Undergraduate students who fall into these categories and intend to live off-campus must complete a non-resident intent form and submit supporting documentation.
