Campus Tours & Information Sessions

With a Brown University student as your guide, the guided campus tour gives prospective students and their families the opportunity to see campus first-hand, learn about Brown's history, and discover the many opportunities the University has to offer. While on campus be sure to take the opportunity to attend a class and make the most of your visit.

  • Campus tours are approximately one hour.
  • Information sessions are approximately 50 minutes. 
  • Both campus tours and information sessions are intended to complement one another, and therefore contain different information for prospective students and their families.  To maximize your visit, we encourage visitors to attend both, if possible. 
  • Campus tours and information sessions begin at the Stephen Robert '62 Campus Center located at 75 Waterman Street, Providence, Rhode Island. 
  • The campus center information desk hours are 8:30AM-5:00PM Monday-Friday. 
  • We ask that prospective students register for campus tours. This allows students and families to stay informed of programs and events taking place locally and globally throughout their college search. There is no option to register for information sessions, but we do hope you attend an information session either before or after your tour to get the full Brown experience!

Helpful Hints

  • Street Parking: Visitors may find metered street parking on the streets in and around campus, which costs 25 cents for every 12 minutes. Please pay close attention to signs that are marked for Brown-specific spaces – these are reserved for Brown employees only, do not park in these spaces. Cars parked in these spaces without Brown University parking permits may be towed at the owner's expense.  For additional parking and direction information please click here. A number of construction projects are underway throughout Providence that may disrupt traffic and parking. Campus visitors are encouraged to plan ahead and arrive early. 
  • Groups: We welcome groups, but we do not offer special program tours.  Please plan to arrive 15 minutes before the start of a session or tour.
  • Visiting a class: We offer the opportunity for prospective students to attend a class, please click here to view the full list of classes. We do not offer class visits during the summer months.
  • Interviews: We do not conduct individual interviews on campus due to the large number of potential candidates.
  • Dormitories: For security and safety reasons, campus tours do not enter student dormitories. 
  • Personal belongings: We are unable to securely store personal belongings such as luggage.
  • Travel: There are many paths to Brown. Visit Brown's travel page for driving directions, parking information, and accommodations.
