housing groups

Being in a housing group does not mean that you must live with the other people in your group. However, it does mean that you are required to select housing at the same time as them during the lottery. Once your group has been selected, it cannot be changed. For this reason, we advise you to think carefully when selecting your group.


Groups can have anywhere from 1 to 10 students. The best group size is one containing between 4 and 8 members. Very large (>8) or very small (<4) groups or groups with an odd number of members may have more difficulty selecting housing during the lottery.


1. All the members of your group must be returning to Brown for the fall semester.

2. Your group must select housing for every member of the group on the night of the lottery. This means that if your group has 8 members, for example, you must select housing for 8 people when you pick your rooms.

3. Groups wishing to pick rooms designated as sophomore-only must consist entirely of rising sophomores or be a mix of rising sophomores and upperclassmen.
