Our internal mail address is Box 1903 which you can use if you are expecting something from another department at Brown. For postal mail and packages use the below address to ship to the Center, though personal mail should be sent to your home address as we cannot forward items shipped here in error.
Please items that need to be sent to the Center use:

If you receive mail that has been sent to the CCMB mailbox it will be left in a mailbox located to the right of the main reception desk on the floor. Mail is sorted daily by our student workers into the mailboxes.
If you are looking to book conference room 302, 320, 370, or 375 please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include the following information in your request:
Contact person for the reservation
Group or Individual name
Affiliation (e.g. CCMB - Ramachandran Lab Group)
Date and time of the reservation
Frequency of reservation (one time or repeating)
Please note that recurring meetings will not be approved unless they are for a DSI (CCMB/CNTR) faculty member or academic group. If you would like to reserve room 324 or 329, graduate students can do so via the calendar links pinned in the Slack.
CCMB & DSI students, staff, faculty, and visitors are free to help themselves to the coffee and tea available in the kitchen on the floor. Please bring your own reusable mug or water bottle to cut down on waste, though we do provide sustainable compostable single use items. Supplies are monitored regularly though if anything is missing from the kitchen please contact Sabrina at email@example.com and she will address your request.
PLEASE KEEP THE KITCHEN CLEAN – Facilities does a fantastic job of cleaning our spaces however we don't want to abuse the privilege so please wipe up spills after yourself.
Send email to firstname.lastname@example.org and one of the members of the CIS staff will respond to you. All laptops provided to student for the Computational Biology program are supported by our IT staff including repairs and maintenance which we cover through the CCMB funds. If you need repairs while traveling contact email@example.com at your earliest convenience to request approval for reimbursing for out of pocket repair expenses PRIOR to paying for repairs yourself.
There are both black/white and color multi-function printers on the floor for use. Instructions are available via QR codes by the printers or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
We also have a poster printer that students and faculty may use to print off posters for conferences and presentations. If you would like to have a poster printed, please contact Maria at email@example.com. Poster Printing Notes: The printer is 42" wide - your poster will print best/easiest if one side is 42".
