Where to Start?
There are many people and offices at Brown to advise and support you as an undergraduate, graduate or medical student. The hardest part may be in knowing which of those many resources best matches your need. If you start in one place and it turns out that your best support will come from a different office, we will be happy to direct you and connect you to someone else. Use the Quick Reference listing below as a guide to available resources.
How to Help a Friend in Distress

If you need help with a difficult and urgent situation, you may also contact the student support deans in the Office of Student Life.
