Did you know?
More than 96 percent of Brandeis' graduate population live off-campus in Waltham or in the surrounding communities.
Housing for Graduate Students
Brandeis has extremely limited space for housing graduate students on campus, and space is limited to one year. We do have many resources available for helping students find off-campus housing, either close-by within the Waltham area, or easily accessible by public transportation within the broader Boston Metro community.
Jessica Basile, senior department coordinator of the Graduate Student Center, will be able to assist you with your off-campus housing search and serve as a point person for all of your off-campus housing concerns.
The Office of Graduate Student Affairs put together a list serve which we will use to coordinate housing opportunities for incoming students. We hope to have both new and returning students as well as landlords subscribe to this list and to use it as a preliminary step in finding housing in Waltham, Cambridge and Boston.
We will be sending occasional information to all of you via this list once a week that we hope will assist you in finding suitable and affordable housing. We hope you'll share your needs and that this list will become a community where people can find not only housing, but housemates and roommates among other students.
