As part of the Division of Campus Life, the Student Activities Office leads campus efforts to support 400+ student groups. We co-coordinate undergraduate Orientation with the Dean of the College and support the Brown Outdoor Leadership Training (BOLT)Brown Student Agencies, and Liber Brunensis (Brown's Yearbook).

In addition, the office provides oversight and coordination for three facilities that serve the Brown community—the Stephen Robert '62 Campus Center and both T.F. Green Hall and Alumnae Hall auditorium for student performing arts.
