Brown University is accessible from anywhere in Rhode Island via RIPTA bus. RIPTA bus and trolley routes terminate in Kennedy Plaza. Once there, these bus routes will take you through to Thayer Street (a block away from our building):
- 35 Rumford/Newport Avenue Outbound
- 40 Butler/Elmgrove Outbound
- 1 Eddy/Hope/Benefit Outbound
- 49 Camp Street Outbound
- 78 Beverage Hill Outbound
Schedules for all of these can be found online. The fare for both the bus and the trolley is $2. You may transfer at discounted rates; see the RIPTA website for detailed fare information.
Get off at the stop immediately following the tunnel. Walk half a block downhill on Thayer Street (past the Starbucks). At the intersection, cross both Waterman and Thayer Streets, and walk past the 14-story Sciences Library. The CIT (a 6-story red brick building) will be on your right.
