Student discounts with your Brown ID


There are so many reasons to love your Brown ID. Sure, you might have lost it a few times over Spring Weekend and sure, it might make you remember what you looked like with bangs, but that card has swiped you into an incredible Brunonian community. And as if that weren’t enough, it also boasts free RIPTA rides! And your email? It’s good for free Microsoft Office, free Rosetta Stone, and free New York Times. There are so many reasons to love free things.

Here is a list of things you can get by proudly showing off your ID or using your .edu email
