Brandeis is working hard to take what we learned this fall semester and apply it to Spring 2021. The semester will begin on Feb. 1 and employ a similar mix of remote and in-person learning, with enormous flexibility for students to decide what works for them. Read our announcement about the spring academic calendar, and we will continue to update this site with more information.

Brandeis was founded seven decades ago on principles of inclusion, diversity and equity. As we welcome you to a newly imagined fall semester grounded in health and safety, these values sustain us. In fact, they make it possible for us to confront an evolving global pandemic and deep inequity, as individuals and as members of a community rooted in social justice.

These values guided our decision to offer a hybrid teaching and learning model, with undergraduate classes held in person, remotely or through a combination of both methods. Our graduate schools will offer their classes in a hybrid format.

The residential experience is a key part of a Brandeis education. We are able to provide on-campus housing for almost all undergraduates, with modifications to promote our community’s health and safety.

We've introduced new ways of learning, teaching and coming together, both remotely and on campus. Yet our mission remains the same: to give every student a world-class Brandeis education.

Health and Safety Measures

Our close-knit community is a hallmark of the Brandeis experience. In the same spirit and with the same dedication, protecting our community’s health and safety is our highest priority.

While our “new normal” requires that each of us follow the university’s comprehensive protocols to stay safe and healthy in the face of the evolving pandemic, our community spirit is helping us create new ways to connect to one another, even when we cannot come together in person.
