Employee Housing & General Summer Housing

Summer housing for on-campus student employees is available from Sunday, June 3, 2018, to Friday, August 11, 2018. Student employees will be housed in the Charles River Apartments.

Eligibility Requirements

Students must meet the following requirements in order to receive on-campus housing as a student employee.

  1. Full-time undergraduate student at Brandeis for the spring 2018 semester and the fall 2018 semester. Students graduating in spring 2018 are eligible for summer housing on a case by case basis. (Students who are not working for a University Department do NOT qualify for the reduced summer employee rate, but can apply for Summer Housing and will be evaluated on a case by case basis. The default rate for Summer Housing is $250 per week, regardless of the assignment location or room type.) 
  2. Be employed by a Brandeis department at least part-time. Only students working on-campus can receive on-campus Summer Employee Housing.
  3. Receive permission from your employer to live on-campus for the summer. Students should confirm summer employment with a supervisor before completing the summer student employee housing application, as not all departments can support students living on-campus. (Note you should not expect your department to pay all or a portion of your housing fees, please discuss with your supervisor before committing to a space on campus for the summer)
  4. Students taking part in a JBS program or taking summer classes are not eligible for student employee housing but they are eligible for Summer School Housing in Ziv. (Special exemptions are reviewed on a case by case basis.)

Summer Rates*

The summer housing rate for student employees is $150/week. There is no prorating if a student withdraws from housing mid-week; they will still need to pay for the entire week.

*The cost of housing for summer school is a flat rate of $250/week if you are not sponsored by a University Department.
