New Transfer Students
Welcome new transfer students! We are excited for you to join our community at Brandeis. Students will be housed based on their entering class year. We cannot guarantee housing at this time for all transfer students. Students entering Brandeis as sophomores may be housed in the Castle, East, North, Massell, or Rosenthal. Students entering as juniors or seniors may be housed in Charles River, the Village, or Ziv. Please see the quads section of our website for more information about the different quads.
Transfer students who wish to request on-campus housing must complete the New Transfer Student Housing Application on MyHousing. Please submit the application by July 1 for priority. Applications will be accepted until August 1. Students may receive housing on a rolling basis, depending on available space. Priority for on-campus housing will be given to international and out of state students.
Students who require medical, psychological, or disability accommodations should complete a Need-Based Housing Request form and submit it to Community Living by May 15. Requests received after May 15 will still be accepted, but there may be a delay in reviewing the forms due to the volume of requests. A Medical Provider form must also be submitted with proper documentation to either the Health Center or Psychological Counseling Center depending on the nature of the request. Information about the need-based housing process can be found in the Need-Based Housing Request Brochure.
