Institute Travel and Hotel Information

Getting to Brown by Plane

T.F. Green Airport (PVD) is located in Warwick, RI, approximately 9.4 miles from Brown, and is served by most national and regional airlines. Cabs or Uber are the best ways to get to campus.

Boston's Logan Airport (BOS) is a good second choice. Boston is 51 miles from Providence, and there are multiple transit options: bus, which leaves directly from Logan, and train, which requires you to get to South Station by MBTA. You can always take an Uber or a cab also.
