This page is for Brown undergraduate and graduate students who will be enrolled in instruction at Brown and living in Providence during the 2020-21 academic year. It outlines what is required and also strongly recommended of you before you come to campus and upon your arrival.
In light of upward trends of COVID-19 cases nationally, President Christina H. Paxson announced Aug. 11 that Brown will take a phased approach to bringing students back for the fall semester.
In the first phase of the fall term, all undergraduate classes will be taught fully online from September 9 until the week of October 5, and only a limited number of undergraduates will be permitted to return before Labor Day. Students enrolled for the fall who don’t receive permission to live on campus in the first phase will be permitted to come to campus in a second phase of move-in that will begin in late September, provided the public health situation improves. We recommend that students living off campus delay their arrival until late September.
