Conference November 12-14, 2006. The Jerusalem Perspective: 150 years of Archaeological Research

You have two choices for accomodations on campus: the Inn at Brown or the Vartan Gregorian Quadrangle dormitory , both located at 101 Thayer Street.

Inn at Brown

Twenty-four hotel-style rooms are available at the Inn at Brown. Inn rooms feature private bathrooms, color television, daily housekeeping service and air conditioning. Twenty-two of these rooms contain two double beds, and since the price is per room (not per person), it is possible to share a room and split costs, though you must make your own arrangements with your roommate so that both are listed on the registration form at the time you send it in. Inn rooms are $110/room/night.

The Inn's front desk is open daily from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. and is located on the first floor of Building A in the Vartan Gregorian Quadrangle, at the corner of Charlesfield and Thayer Streets. Reservations can be made by calling 401-863-7500 or by emailing .

The Inn's website can be found here.


Parking is included in the nightly room rate for guests staying at the Inn at Brown. Parking is $3/car/night for guests staying in the dormitory rooms and permits may be purchased at housing check in. Sorry, but there is no parking in campus lots for guests not staying on campus. Overnight parking on city streets is prohibited by Providence City Ordinance.
