Apply to Live in Brown College

2023-2024 Application information will be added later.
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 2023-2024 academic year will be available around May 2023. 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, which will then direct them to a PDF version of our supplemental application (all within the Housing & Residence Life website). Both the Housing application and our supplement are necessary to be considered for a spot in Brown. You may submit the supplemental application to the link below or to the link provided through the Housing and Residence Life website.

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

We have found transfer and exchange students to be an integral part of our community and look forward to receiving your application.
