Events at Brown are a vital aspect of maintaining community. It is more important than ever that the University support opportunities for the community to come together, both in-person and remotely. Beginning August 15, 2021, visitors and guests are allowed to attend events on the Brown University campus without specific approvals or permissions, though visitors and guests to campus will be subject to Brown’s policies and health protocols.
The following guidance is currently in place for in-person events:
- Members of the community planning events, conferences, programs and meetings for the fall semester (including orientation and pre-orientation programming) can do so with the expectation that there will be no restrictions, limitations or special approval processes to host in-person events, gatherings or performances of any type.
- There are no limits on attendance/audience size (other than fire code and other non-pandemic related restrictions), and no limitations on types of event visitors and guests, whether or not they are members of the campus community.
- Space reservations for events taking place Aug. 15, 2021, and later can be made through the Scheduling Office.
- Undergraduate student organizations should work with Brown’s Student Activities Office for guidance and support related to in-person meetings and activities. The Student Activities Office also continues to provide guidance and reminders on its website.
