The building is handicapped accessible, but if you believe you will need special accommodations of any sort, please contact Aida Manduley (brownsheec@gmail.com) as soon as possible.


Public Transportation


Brown University's Smith-Buonanno Hall is easily accessible via various public transit options:


Within Rhode Island


The Rhode Island Public Transit Authority buses are your best bet.


  1. Take a bus to the Tunnel & Thayer stop (e.g. 42 - Hope Street bus or 92 - East Side trolley).
  2. Heard north on Thayer St. toward Waterman St.
  3. Turn left at Waterman St.
  4. Turn right at Brown St.
  5. Turn right at Cushing St. 
  6. You've arrived! The building should be in front of you, or a bit off to your right. 


From Boston


There is a low-cost commuter rail from Boston's South Station running a Providence/Stoughton Line that puts you at the Providence Amtrak Station. From there, it's a short walk, taxi, or bus ride to our venue. 




Street parking is generally available in the area around Brown University. The University also provides parking permits for visitors based on availability. See the Brown University Parking information pages for details.

Internet Access


Brown University is able to provide pre-registered participants with free Wi-Fi Internet access during KinkForAll Providence. The last day to apply for a GuestID and access is March 14th. If you want to use the University's free wireless Internet service, please email brownsheec@gmail.com with the following information:


  • Legal full name
  • Email address
  • Phone number


An individual username and password will be emailed to you before the event (or handed to you on a piece of paper at the event, depending on when you registered), allowing you to log on to the University's Wi-Fi network. 


We're working to provide some open Internet access for those who do not pre-register or who are not comfortable giving this information. We hope that everyone will have at least some Wi-Fi, but if you know in advance that you will be attending, would like to use the Internet, and are able to give the required information, we urge you to do so. Rest assured, that information will be kept strictly confidential and will only be known by Aida Manduley and the Brown administrator in charge of issuing the Guest-IDs. That said, please do still sign up on the registration table above, using whatever information you feel comfortable posting.
