who we are
Brown is a nationally recognized, self-governed community that accepts first-years as well as upperclassmen. Students must apply to live here, but our application is much more fun and creative than your UVA college app. If accepted, you get to live with active and caring people and attend tons of events throughout the year. Brown is especially diverse – we have actors and artists, engineers and computer scientists, philosophy and politics majors – and we do our best to make sure you fit in. Though we’re a tight-knit community, we provide an accepting and intellectually stimulating atmosphere for people of all backgrounds. There is always something going on in Brown. According to a past resident, "Brown is for the interested and interesting."

A Heritage Film Project presents a film by Eduardo Montes-Bradley
“Monroe Hill” unearths the history of the site that contains the last remaining structures of the late 18th century southern plantation. These surviving structures are silent witnesses to Monroe’s struggle as a farmer and a politician from the late 1780’s until the laying of the cornerstone at the University of Virginia on October 6, 1817.
