Spread the Word with Tableslips

Tableslips are a fundamental part of the dining experience at Brown. Eating at the Ratty and V-Dub provides not just a great meal but also the inside track about what's going on around campus.


Where to Tableslip?

You'll find tableslips at most meals at the Ratty and V-Dub. Please read the rules to the right carefully so your publicity efforts respect other students enjoying their meals and the Brown Dining staff members who work hard to keep the dining halls orderly and welcoming.

What are Tableslips?

Tableslips are hard to miss when you eat lunch or dinner in the Ratty and V-Dub. Some advertise events at Brown and in Providence and others touch upon issues affecting life on campus. These tableslips are provided by students groups in cooperation with Brown Dining as a service to the Brown Community.
If you're a student group designing a tableslip, be creative! Artwork, bold titles and humor can make your event stand out among the often dozen or so tableslips.

Tableslipping Policies

  1. Tableslips are 1/4 of the size of letter paper (8.5" x 11"). They lie flat on the table surface. They are printed with black ink on white paper.
  2. Students distributing tableslips must arrive during the appropriate times. When you enter the dining hall, please present your Brown ID and tableslips to the cashier. Please let the cashier know if you plan to eat, so that your card can be swiped. Also make sure to sign in and out on the log sheet.
