Brown Cottage can accommodate up to six guests in three private rooms with shared space int the kitchen and living room area.

During normal business hours, all guest key packets can be picked up on the Cottage Key table outside the Campus Events offices in Bunting Hall, Garden Level. If a guest is arriving after normal business hours, it is the host’s responsibility to make other arrangements or take the guest’s key packet to the Public Safety office for pickup. Each key packet includes housing location, check in and check out time information, a key to the appropriate housing location and a temporary parking pass.
