As part of the Division of Campus Life, the Student Activities Office leads campus efforts to support 500+ student groups. We co-coordinate undergraduate Orientation with the Dean of the College and support the Brown Outdoor Leadership Training (BOLT)Brown Student AgenciesLiber Brunensis (Brown's Yearbook) and Greek and Program House engagement.

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

Student Activities also works closely with the Undergraduate Council of Students to recognize and support student organizations.
