Students requesting transitional housing must be enrolled in either Summer Employee Housing, Summer School Housing, or JBS Summer Housing.  An application for one of these housing options must be submitted prior to requesting transitional housing.

Transitional Housing

Transitional housing is only available for Brandeis students moving from one on-campus housing assignment to another.  Hence, students in transitional housing are "transitioning" from a spring assignment to a summer assignment or a summer assignment to a fall assignment.

We anticipate that summer housing will be available for students in transitional housing starting on Sunday, June 1.  Students in transitional housing should be prepared to move out of transitional housing and into summer housing at that time.  Housing assignments for transitional housing may be in different assignments from your spring semester housing.  Students should be prepared to change housing for the transitional housing period.  Summer housing may be available for some students in Transitional Housing earlier than June 1.  For that reason, we require that all students in transitional housing stay on-campus during the transitional housing period in order to move out of temporary housing as soon as possible.

Summer to fall transitional housing will likely be in students fall assignments where possible.  Some fall assignments may not be ready at the end of summer, and students may need to relocate to temporary housing during that transitional housing period as well.  Students signing up for fall transitional housing will be required to stay on-campus during the entire transitional housing period and will be expected to move to their fall assignment as soon as possible.

Transitional Housing Dates

Spring to summer transitional housing will run from Saturday, May 10 to Sunday, June 1.

Summer to fall transitional housing will run from Friday, August 8 to Friday, August 22.

Transitional Housing Rates

Spring to Summer Transitional Housing is a flat rate of $500.

Summer to Fall Transitional Housing is a flat rate of $300.
