About Us

The Real Estate & Auxiliary Housing Office consists of 13 dedicated professionals focused on all aspects of the University’s commercial & residential real estate transactions & operations.  From leasing & managing auxiliary housing to large scale development projects like South Street Landing, we work within the framework of Brown's master plan to manage the development, acquisition, lease, sublease and disposal of real estate.  In doing so, we -

  • Own and manage commercial real estate on College Hill and in the Jewelry District with a goal to foster community building and economic development
