Parking Information

In addition to the streets around the Brown campus, you may park your car in any of the University lots anytime beginning 5 p.m. Friday through the weekend.  The Power Street lot (both lower and upper levels) at the corner of Power and Thayer streets is the largest lot on campus. The top level is entered on Power Street and the bottom level is entered on the corner of Williams and Brook streets. A PDF map of all Brown parking lots is available. Please note, due to very high traffic volume and street closures, parking is challenging during Commencement weekend and we ask that you plan accordingly when arriving for events and activities.

The Hope High School parking lot (located at the corner of Olney and Hope streets) and the Wheeler School parking lot (located at 216 Hope Street) will also be available on Sunday, May 27 from 7 AM to 4 PM. Parking is provided at the sole risk of the owner of the vehicle and Brown will not be responsible or liable for any loss or damage to the vehicle (including, but not limited to, accessories, or contents) parked in the lots as a result of theft, fire, collision, vandalism, acts of nature or any other cause.

Please remember to lock your car, whether it is on the street or in a lot. Do observe city parking laws; any cars parked in a temporary emergency no parking tow zone, in marked handicapped spaces without a placard, in violation of a fire hydrant, blocking driveways, or obstructing Brown Police or Providence Police sawhorses will be ticketed or towed at owner’s expense. There is no parking on any Providence city street from 1 a.m. - 5 a.m.
