Group Tours

Brown has a busy campus and many visitors. Accordingly, groups larger than 10 people are required to contact us at least three weeks in advance to schedule a visit. Approval is not guaranteed; however, more advanced notice may increase the likelihood of accommodation. We cannot always guarantee a specific tour slot and appreciate your flexibility with our published tour and information session schedules. Contact us here.

Please note that, due to high visitor volume in the spring, we are unable to accommodate group tours in April.
