The Department of Facilities Management works in cooperation with Student and Employee Accessibility Services (SEAS). Members of the Brown community and visitors should contact SEAS at 401-863-9588 (phone and TTY) with any questions or concerns.

The Department of Facilities Management plans and manages today’s renovations and new buildings in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act. In the effort to create a more universally accessible campus, Facilities faces two difficult challenges. First is Brown’s historic building stock. Many of the older buildings on campus were designed without elevators and with tighter dimensional tolerances than are seen in construction today. Secondly, the campus sits on College Hill, making it difficult to consistently lay out accessible paths between buildings.

These challenges are being met through innovative design one project at a time. Project highlights are Sharpe Refectory, University Hall, Sidney Frank Hall, and The Walk to name a few.
