Undergraduate Student Housing

UPDATE-3/4/2024-UNDERGRADUATE 2024/2025 HOUSING HAS BEEN FILLED. The Auxiliary Housing office rents and manages Brown-owned residential housing units on campus. For the 2024/2025 academic year, housing begins on Monday, June 3, 2024 at noon and terminates on Monday, May 26, 2025 (Memorial Day) at noon. Only this 12-month term will be offered; however,subletting is permitted.

IMPORTANT:  Rising juniors who have not received off-campus permission will not be allowed to view housing or sign a housing agreement. Inquiries regarding off-campus permission should be directed to the Office of Residential Life.

For 2024/2025 housing availability, please submit a New Guest Card and a representative from the Auxiliary Housing department will contact you to discuss your housing needs. Apartments are offered on a first-come, first-serve basis.

A reservation fee of $150 per person (charged to student's Banner account) is required to hold an apartment. In the case of a multi-person unit, each person must give permission for the $150 reservation fee to be charged to their Banner account before that unit will be held for the group. The $150 reservation fee is refundable if the applicant does not receive off-campus housing approval. If the applicant does receive off-campus approval but decides not to rent the reserved unit, the reservation fee will not be returned. If the applicant receives off-campus approval and rents the unit, the reservation fee will be applied towards the required security deposit, which is equal to one month’s rent. 

Rental charges are placed on the student's Banner account on a per-semester basis through the Bursar's office. Utilities, such as heat, hot water, natural gas, and electricity are included in the rent. Telephone service, cable TV service, internet access, and the wiring for these services are available through private providers at the tenants’ cost. 


Tenants with a fully-executed rental agreement may choose to sublet their rooms. The tenant is responsible for receiving compensation directly from their subtenant. The tenant's Banner account will be billed for the 12-month term. 

Each subtenant must be a Brown matriculated student, with off-campus permission (rising juniors) and be in good standing for the term they are requesting housing. All subtenants must abide by the Brown Code of Conduct, the Auxiliary Housing Rules and Regulations, and act in accordance with the terms and conditions set forth in the Student Housing Occupancy Agreement. See the Forms section to access the Sublet Form.  


The Auxiliary Housing office has a limited number of parking spaces for rent on a first-come, first-serve basis. Parking is offered in full month terms only and the parking cost is charged to the tenant's Banner account in one lump sum. Please contact Catrina Ritchie for additional parking information.
