Support for Students

On-Campus Students

The Dean of Students Office is ready to support you. They may be reached at 781-736-3600.

Meals

You will pick up meals from the outdoor pick-up location near Usdan; all meals should be ordered contact-free.

Academics

As long as your health allows, plan to continue working on your classes while in isolation. Upon entering isolation, please notify your instructors and ask for ways to participate remotely. Students should arrange directly with their faculty members to receive class materials for classes that are missed due to required quarantine or isolation, just as they would do for any other illness that required them to miss a class.

Health Center

The providers at the Health Center and the BCTP, in collaboration with the local board of health, based on testing results, dates of exposure and symptom assessment will make a clinical determination regarding the date of release from isolation (for both on-campus and off-campus students).

The Health Center and Brandeis Counseling Center are available for telehealth services and will assist in coordinating care with health care providers and arranging delivery of medications.

In case of an emergency, Brandeis will arrange transportation to a local hospital.

To leave isolation, you must receive approval from the BCTP.

Off-Campus Students
