A medium-sized, independent university located in the nation’s center, Washington University is counted among the world’s leaders in teaching, research, patient care, and service to society.

Washington University’s overarching goal is to enhance our leadership today to benefit America and the world tomorrow.   We will achieve this goal by focusing on the key issues facing a global society, leading to a better quality of life for all.

The Brown School is located in the southeast corner of Washington University’s Danforth Campus. Due to a campus expansion project, parking near the Brown School is limited and we encourage guests to consider alternatives for arriving other than by personal vehicle. If you are planning to park on campus, there are several garages with designated visitor parking, and we highly recommend that you allow at least 30 minutes for parking and walking to Goldfarb or Hillman Hall.
