Emma Watson is heading back to Brown University.

After a Harry Potter-filled hiatus from the books, the 22-year-old actress will return to Providence, R.I., in January for the Winter 2013 semester, her rep confirmed to Gossip Cop this week.

Watson, an English Literature major, announced her leave of absence in March 2011 when she was on the heels of a busy schedule for the final Harry Potter film. Following her break, Watson spent a semester abroad at Oxford University.

The Perks of Being a Wallflower star joins a growing list of celebrities who have been juggling higher education and campus life with their on screen and professional careers.

Dakota Fanning has been roaming the New York University campus as a sophomore. The 18-year-old will have her hands full in the coming weeks, thanks to the much-anticipated release of the fifth and final Twilight film.

Meanwhile, iCarly star Miranda Cosgrove kicked off her freshman year at the University of Southern California where model Patrick Schwarzenegger also started this fall.

The potential classmates might bump into one professor Franco — as in James Franco— who is set to teach a film production class at USC next spring. The Spring Breakers actor is also completing his PhD in English at Yale University.
