BCSC Regular Operating Hours 

For everyone's safety and care the BCSC is currently only accessible to Brown ID holders during our regular business hours: Monday-Friday 9:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. 

After-Hours Card Access

After-hours card access is given to BCSC administrative and student staff, Minority Peer Counselors, and other Brown University members who have received prior approval from the BCSC to use the building outside of regular business hours.

When you receive approval to meet in the BCSC outside of regular business hours, you will be given access to the building only for the time period that your group is meeting. This will be communicated with you when your card access is granted. It is important to stay within your designated time.

[For student groups] Student groups may reserve only the formal lounge through 25live, our other spaces cannot be reserved by student groups. Please visit for room reservation. For weekend student group reservations via 25 Live, we require a special training on how to use the space. We will have the Campus Public Safety team notified to unlock and lock the space. Restrictions will prohibit groups from propping open doors or letting uninvited visitors into the space.

For questions about the BCSC’s after-hours card access and building policies, please email [email protected] 

 [For the general public] Please email [email protected] to schedule a tour or an appointment for the space. Please keep in mind our hours of operation are Monday-Friday 8:30-5:00pm. 

Covid-19 Addendum

All individuals using the Brown Center for Students of Color must abide by the current health and wellness policies as detailed on The BCSC may update building policies and card swipe access when necessary to be in compliance with Healthy Brown. If changes are made, we will communicate with all after-hours card access holders.
