Apply to Live in Brown College



2021 Application information will be added soon.

Excited about living among students who interact as a community? The application for incoming first-year and transfer students wishing to live in Brown for the 2021-2022 academic year will be available in May 2021. The application process for current UVA students takes place in the fall. For additional information, check out our Frequently Asked Questions.



How to Apply

The deadline for incoming and transfer students to complete their application to Brown is the same time as the UVA housing application deadline. Students will need to apply through the Housing & Residence Life website. 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 materials in the following ways:

  1. 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)

If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact the Brown College Membership Committee at
