Student life in the residence hall is not separate from the academic mission of the University, but rather supportive of students' total development. Within the mission of our work as Residential Life, we strive to promote core values that encompass what we hope students will gain through living and learning in our Residence Halls.
Brown's residence halls include 49 buildings that total approximately 1.6 million square feet. The oldest was built in 1822 and the newest in 2012. The Main Green is no more than a five to ten-minute walk from any first-year residence hall. All residence halls are smoke-free. Residence halls at Brown are coed, which means that men and women are housed on the same floor in most instances.
