Due to growing concerns regarding the spread of COVID-19, University administrators recently made the difficult decision to cancel all large on-campus events beginning March 11. Unfortunately, this includes all campus tours and information sessions. We will reassess these policies in the coming weeks.

The sustainability tour introduces prospective students to sustainable initiatives at Brown including compost, recycling, LEED buildings, local food, and alternative living options. Current Brown students share their experiences with sustainability at Brown and how students can get involved inside and outside the classroom. The tour lasts approximately 1 hour. 

For the Spring, the tour runs on Tuesdays at 1-2 p.m. and Fridays at 12-1 p.m., from Tuesday, February 18th until Friday, April 24th. (March 24th and 27th excluded).
