Visiting the Department of Mathematics

Thank you for planning a visit to the Brown University Department of Mathematics.  Here is some important information that may be useful to you.

All visitors and guests must comply with current University policy regarding face masks and coverings for vaccinated and unvaccinated Brown community members and visitors and guests, which can be found on the University’s COVID-19 Campus Activity Status page.


Other than driving, there are several ways to come to campus.


Visitors may find parking in Lot 68 Upper, also called the Power Street Parking Garage, located at 111 Power Street. The garage entrance is located at the intersection of Power and Thayer Streets (View Map). The garage has two gate arms which are left open. Please enter in the right lane and exit via the left lane.

The Lot 68 Upper garage contains two pay stations, which are located at the front and rear of the garage. Please locate an empty parking space, purchase your visitor parking permit via a pay station and place your receipt permit on your vehicle dashboard.



Mon - Fri 8am - 6pm


All Day Rate until 6pm (Monday - Friday) 


Weekdays after 6pm, weekends, holidays 


The pay stations accept credit cards and U.S. bills. However, the pay stations do not supply change so please use the exact amount of bills. Please allow plenty of time for parking, as the visitor lot is a few blocks from the Campus Center.

ADA Visitor Parking

Brown maintains visitor spaces that meet ADA standards for accessibility in Lot 65, which is located on the south side of Benevolent Street between Thayer and Brook streets. Any valid state ADA placard may be used in any ADA space in the lot to park for FREE.

    Street Parking

    Visitors may find metered parking on the streets in and around campus. These meters take both cash and credit cards and costs 25 cents for every 12 minutes. Metered spaces allow for a maximum 2-hour parking.

    Please pay close attention to on-street signs marked for Brown Permit Parking. These spaces require a Brown employee daytime parking permit between 8am-12pm.


    After receiving a communication from the department administrator coordinating your visit, you will receive an email from [email protected] with instructions to fill out a form to enter you into our payment system.  Please send all original, itemized receipts to the department administrator for reimbursement.  The receipts must show proof of payment, such as a $0 balance or the last four digits of the card number.  Without this, Brown will not be able to process your reimbursement request.

    Reimbursement requests must be submitted within 60 days from the date of your trip. (Brown considers expense requests that are over 60 days to be income, which would be reported on your W-2 form.)
