Apply to Live in Brown College

Excited about living among students who interact as a community?

The application for incoming first years and transfer students wishing to live in Brown for the 2016-2017 academic year will be available in May. The application process for current UVa students takes place in the Fall. For additional information, check out our Membership FAQ.

How to Apply

The deadline for current UVA students and transfer students to complete their application to Brown is Thursday, June 1, 2017. Students will need to apply through the Housing website available here. Applicants should complete the general Housing application, and will then be directed to a PDF version of our supplemental application. Both the Housing application and our supplement are necessary to be considered for a spot in Brown.

We can receive hard copies or supplemental materials in the following ways:

  1. Mail:
    Attn: Ms. Chris Aukstikalnis
    Brown College at the University of Virginia
    P.O. Box 400610, Newcomb Station

  2. Electronic Submissions:  
    To submit your applications electronically, upload a PDF file to our submission portal. Please use your UVA computing ID as the filename (e.g. brc2cg.pdf)
