Overview

At Brown, we recognize that a large part of personal growth and development inevitably takes place outside of the classroom. This is the result of intentional programs and services as well as myriad interpersonal interactions with members of the Brown community. As such, living on campus is critically important to the overall educational experience. Students will benefit from guidance and support from their interconnected community of peer scholars as well as several peer counselors who live in the residence halls and interact with faculty and deans to create a vibrant living and learning environment.

Our Mission

The Office of Residential Life fosters a safe and inclusive living environment that promotes student learning and holistic development by providing tools to help students navigate the social, emotional, and academic elements of their residential experience. This includes providing opportunities for students to hold themselves and each other accountable, ultimately preparing them to be responsible global citizens.
