Summer School Housing

Students enrolled in the Brandeis Summer School may live on-campus. Students can only live on-campus during the session they are enrolled. Summer School students will be able to select housing in Ziv or Charles River. Session 1 housing begins on Sunday, June 3, 2018 and ends Friday, July 6, 2018. Session 2 housing begins Sunday, July 8, 2018 and ends Friday, August 10, 2018. Move-in and move-out dates are subject to change. Students enrolled in sessions one and two may stay on-campus between them. All enrolled Summer School students assigned to housing in Ziv are required to have a summer meal plan. Students requesting to live in Charles River Apartments will NOT be required to have a summer meal plan.

Eligibility Requirements

Students must meet the following requirements in order to receive on-campus housing as a summer school student:

  1. Enrolled in a summer school course. Students do not have to be enrolled prior to requesting housing, but must be enrolled prior to moving into housing.
  2. Enrolled as an undergraduate at a college or university during the academic year. Students in the Brandeis mid-year class beginning in the spring semester 2018 are eligible for on-campus housing.
  3. Students who withdraw from Summer School during the summer will have 48 hours to vacate their housing assignment.

Housing Rate

The cost of housing for summer school is a flat rate of $250/week. This comes out to a cost of $1,250 per summer school session, or $2,500 for both. When completing the summer housing application summer school students will be able to choose housing in Ziv or Charles River. 

Meal plans are required for summer school housing if you are living in Ziv. Only the 15-meal plan is available during the summer, and there are no weekend meal options until July.

Summer Housing Process

Obtaining summer housing is a fairly simple process. Below are the steps that students, faculty, and staff must take in order for students to receive summer housing.

Step 1: Apply

Complete the Summer School Housing Application. Forms must be submitted by May 16, 2018 for priority housing. Applications received after May 16 will be housed in the order they are received.

Step 2: Transitional Housing, Part I

If you wish to live on-campus between the end of final exams and the beginning of the summer, you must complete the Transitional Housing Request form. Spring to summer transitional housing is only available for students enrolled in the summer session 1. Transitional Housing costs a flat rate of $500. Your student account will be billed directly for transitional housing. See the Transitional Housing page for more information.

Step 3: Move-In

Students will be notified of their summer residence by May 25, 2018. Keys for session I housing will be available for pick up on June 3 from the Department of Community Living. Keys for session II will be available on Sunday, July 8, 2018 from the Department of Community Living. Students who are residing on campus for Transitional Housing (part I) may be expected to move into their summer housing early.

Step 4: Transitional Housing, Part II

Students who wish to stay on-campus for the period between the end of summer school and beginning of the fall semester may request summer to fall transitional housing. Summer to fall transitional housing is only available for students enrolled in summer session 2. If you did not request summer to fall transitional housing originally, a new Transitional Housing Request must be completed. The cost of transitional housing for this period is $300. See the Transitional Housing page for more information.
