Open Hours for the Office of Financial Aid

Beginning this Fall, Financial Aid Counselors will regularly be available at two additional campus locations to answer students' financial aid and/or financing related questions. Our counselors are looking forward to introducing themselves to new students, reaching those students who may be hesitant to come by our office, and answering questions students may have related to their finances at Brown (working on campus? studying abroad? buying a computer?). We plan to continue this outreach effort throughout the year and will be assessing the feasibility of additional locations and dates. The Office of Financial Aid on call counselor calendar, including satellite Open Hours, can be accessed via our website here.
