If you will be returning from study abroad, you need to be in contact with the Office of Residential Life directly (Res_Life@brown.edu or 401-863-3500) about your anticipated return to the campus. If you are returning to Brown in the Spring 2018, the Office of Residential Life will contact you in late November regarding the online Housing Preference Form, which is due on December 15, 2017. If you do not hear from Residential Life by the end of November, you should contact them directly. Room assignments for students returning from abroad are sent to your Brown University email address in mid-January.
The Office of Residential Life website provides detailed information about the housing lottery, proxy forms, and general information concerning housing procedures for when you return to campus. For further information, see the Information for Students returning from study abroad or leave of absence.
