As we plan for a robust semester, our community's health, safety and well-being is our highest priority.

By following the university's comprehensive health and safety rules, we will ensure that the upcoming semester is defined by the rich and engaging educational experience Brandeis is known for. Our protocols and procedures follow guidance provided by the city of Waltham, Middlesex County, the commonwealth of Massachusetts and the federal government.

Students, faculty and staff will be expected to pledge that they will adhere to required health and safety guidelines established by the university and the commonwealth of Massachusetts. Each of us has a personal and shared responsibility to create a safe and healthy environment to protect ourselves and those around us.

The following violations of Brandeis’ health and safety policies will result in immediate referral to the department of Student Rights and Community Standards for adjudication, which may result in extensive restrictions from living on or coming to campus:
