By Train…

The Brown University Campus is about a half-mile walk away from Providence Station, which is on both the Amtrak and MBTA commuter rail lines. For commuter rail schedules, check http://www.mbta.com/schedules_and_maps/rail/lines/?route=PROVSTOU. The MBTA commuter rail now offers morning and evening service from Providence Station to TF Green Airport, so it is worth looking into this if you want to save money on cab fare.
