Brown University

Given the strong relationship between RISD and Brown, graduate students often consider the campus up the hill as an extension of RISD’s own. Students with a RISD ID are granted full privileges at Brown’s extensive research libraries, which include “the Rock” (the huge, main Rockefeller Library), the historic John Hay Library and the Orwig Music Library, among others.

Graduate students may also enroll in courses at Brown at no extra cost and often do research alongside Brown students through jointly sponsored projects such as the eMotive electric car or Solar Pavilion Collaborative Research Project. They also appreciate the opportunity to expand their learning through the many lectures, symposia and cultural activities available at Brown.
