When signing in with your Brown username, make sure to use all lowercase letters. Uppercase letters will result in an error.

Your Brown username should be 8 characters or less; if you're an alumni, it could be longer. Do not confuse your Brown username with your Brown Email address. These are separate accounts.

Brown usernames are given to Brown faculty, staff, students, affiliates, and alumni. If you are not affiliated with the university, you will not be able to sign in.

If you are not sure what your Brown username is, you can contact the Brown IT Service Center to acquire it.


Your password should contain all of the following:

  • Cannot contain your first name, last name, or username
  • Cannot match your last four passwords.
  • Must be at least 10 characters in length
  • Must contain at least one lowercase character
  • Must contain at least one number
  • Must contain at least one special character. (i.e. #$%&*)
  • Must contain at least one uppercase character
  • If your password does not meet the above requirements, or you're unable to sign in, you can reset your password here.

    If you are unable to reset your password, please contact the Brown IT Service Center.
