Spiritual Life

The chaplains of Brandeis University warmly welcome you to the Brandeis community. As Jewish, Christian and Muslim leaders, they welcome students of all faiths.

Brandeis encourages and supports all expressions of spiritual and religious life on campus. The university’s three chapels — the Berlin Chapel (Jewish), the Bethlehem Chapel (Catholic) and the Harlan Chapel (Protestant) — serve as the focal point of spiritual and religious activity on campus. In addition, a Muslim prayer room and resource center are located in the Usdan Student Center. If you have any religious needs while at Brandeis, please let us know in advance so we may make accommodations for you.

All international exchange students participate in an orientation program prior to classes starting. Orientation allows students to get to know others, learn about how to get involved on campus, and more!

“My advice to future exchange students is to become part of a student organization. It makes your life at Brandeis busier and enjoyable!”
