Students enrolled in the Brown | RISD Dual Degree program are considered active students at both institutions throughout their five years. BRDD students have access to the resources and services of both institutions. Students in the program may also access support resources at either institution, including the support of staff members in the Division of Campus Life at Brown or the Office of Student Affairs at RISD.
At both institutions there is always someone available during the day for crisis appointments and at other times through a staff on-call rotation schedule. For urgent situations, students may reach Brown’s Administrator-on-call (401-863-3322) during evenings and weekends. At RISD, the Department of Public Safety (401-454-6376) will be able to reach the appropriate staff member to assist students during an emergency.
