Brown Card Services

The Brown Card is the Official Brown University Identification Card that provides access to everyday life at Brown. The Brown Card Office keeps abreast of Industry Standards associated with One-Card Services and strives to continuously improve access and services for the safety and convenience of the University Community.

Each Brown Card displays a magnetic stripe that is encoded with a unique identification number, which allows access to approved buildings for the individual.  The card provides the cardholder with access to dorms, libraries, Athletics, Student Activities, Computing and Information Services, the Brown Bookstore & Computer Store, the RIPTA UPASS Program, as well as many other services at Brown.
