Brown home » Visiting Campus

Get to know Brown firsthand by visiting any time of year.

Tours led by undergraduates are offered regularly. Schedules are available here on the College Admission Web site.

Another way to get a feel for Brown is to browse through our website or Voices, Faces, Brown, an online showcase of undergraduates.

The Brown campus is situated in a historic residential neighborhood overlooking downtown Providence, a prime example of urban renaissance in the Northeast. Cultural opportunities abound, not only in Providence but also throughout the state. A variety of scenic and historic sites are just minutes away by car; Boston, New York City, the Cape and mountains of New England are easily reached as well.


Hotel space in the area is limited and goes fast! If you would like to stay in a hotel or inn, please book your room(s) as early as possible. Below is a listing of area hotels. Several are quite a distance from campus.

For a complete list of hotels, inns, and bed and breakfasts, please call the R. I. Department of Tourism at 800-556-2484. Another source for hotel information is the Providence/Warwick Convention and Visitors Bureau at 800-233-1636.
