The Department of Student Activities

The Department of Student Activities assists student leaders in bringing activities to the Brandeis community, implementing leadership development opportunities, and providing resources to students, staff, and faculty. The Student Activities staff has substantial experience in assisting student leaders. Below are some of the specific resources that the Department can offer:

Student Leader Support

The greatest resources of the department are the experiences and knowledge of the staff who work there! As a student leader, you are encouraged to speak with the Student Activities staff for helpful hints on programming, marketing, leadership skills, and more!

Club Lockers and Storage

Lockers are available on the second and third floors of the Shapiro Campus Center and larger space is available in East Quad. Club/organization leaders should fill out a request form on the Student Activities website ( SCC locker and East Quad Storage forms should be turned in to the Student Activities Office in the SCC. SCC lockers will require a $15 deposit, which will be returned once the key has been returned. If loss of key or damage occurs, a minimum of $15 will be billed to the club leader who took responsibility for the space.  

Card Access to Student Spaces

If students would like card access to a particular space, they must first speak with the person in charge of that space, known as the Office Captain (varies from club to club). The Office Captain will contact the Operations Specialist with the student’s last name and the last 9 digits of the ID card, and then the card will be activated; this may take up to three days. This process must also happen if students get new ID cards.

Key Access to Student Spaces

Keys are distributed in the fall to the designated Office Captain of each space. This coordinator is responsible for collecting the keys from non-active members during the year as well as collecting keys in the spring  to return them to the Operations Specialist. Lost keys are the responsibility of club leaders; lock changes and associated costs due to lost keys are the financial responsibility of the club. Clubs requesting a quantity of keys exceeding the inventory on-hand are required to pay $3.50 per key.   

Keys can be left for member sign-out at the SCC Information Booth, as long as the club provides an access list. Only students listed will be able to sign out the key. The list must be updated each semester by the club leader.

Club Events

Involvement Fairs are great opportunities to recruit new members and spread the word about your club. The fairs are held at the beginning of both the fall and spring semesters.

Club Conferences provide club leaders with the necessary information and tools to be successful at Brandeis. The conference could include breakout sessions such club finances, event planning logistics, and leadership skills, depending on the year. The conference takes place at the beginning of both fall and spring semesters and each club is required to send at least one representative.
