Early Arrival Permission Request Form

At this time, Community Living is unable to take any early arrival requests for the Spring 2021 Semester. Move-in will begin January 25th and more information will be shared by Community Living once the plan is finalized. Early arrival requests for individual students not part of a department-sponsored group/organization returning early may be submitted through MyHousing; if you are coming back for a group or organization, please confirm with your group whether your cost of early arrival will be covered. This form will be available through your MyHousing portal. Please note that we do not accept early arrival requests during the summer terms or for first year students. Students who are permitted to return will be charged a $50 per night fee. 

Event Registration Form

Due to COVID-19 gathering restrictions event registration is not permitted at this time. Refer to the Student Rights and Community Standards website for information on these new policies.

Must be turned in two business days prior to event and by 5 p.m. each Wednesday for all weekend events.  It is expected that all events are registered in advance. A follow-up meeting with a professional staff member will be required in order to discuss the event and receive an Event Registration Permit. Each event requires a primary host and an Alcohol Beverage Server if alcohol is being served. Failure to register events can result in conduct action.

All new first-year and mid-year students are required to live on-campus or commute from home. Students who wish to live off-campus or commute must complete this form. Students who wish to live off-campus and not commute from home must obtain permission from Community Living to live off-campus.

Housing Waitlist Application

Students who were not able to complete the Housing Selection Application prior to the March 19th deadline and still want to live on-campus for the 2021-2022 academic year can complete the Housing Waitlist Application. This application can be found on the MyHousing Portal. 

Please note, students on the Waitlist will not receive a selection number, are not eligible for the Housing Selection process, and cannot be pulled into a space by a student in the housing selection process. Students on the Waitlist will receive communication via email from Community Living over the summer to be offered spaces on campus. While we hope to be able to offer all students on the waitlist an assignment, housing is not guaranteed for students on the Waitlist.

Pull-In Form
The Pull-In Request Form is for students who wish to be pulled into a housing selection process that is not their originally assigned process: sophomores who want to be pulled in by a junior or senior or study abroad students who wish to be pulled in by a non-study abroad student. This form will be available on the MyHousing Portal after housing selection numbers have been released.
Students who wish to participate in the Room Selection Process, but cannot attend at their assigned time, may designate Community Living or another student as a proxy. The student should educate their proxy about their desired choices, as any decisions made by a proxy are binding. The Proxy Form will be available from the Community Living website once Room Selection numbers have been sent out and must be completed by the person being proxied for in advance. More information will be available in the form description.
Winter Break Housing Form - Individual Request
All students looking to stay on campus for Winter Break (past 12:00pm on November 23rd) must complete the Winter Break Housing Application found on their MyHousing portal. Fees for Winter Break Housing vary based on housing assignments as those living in apartments have their fee covered by the University. A meal plan is required for Winter Break.
Withdrawal from Housing

Students who wish to withdraw from on-campus housing, should send an email with the subject line "Withdrawal from Housing" to dcl@brandeis.edu

Spring 2021 Semester:

  • By December 4th, students will not be charged for the semester
  • After December 4th students will be charged 100% of the room contract
Note: Students applying to Return to Housing for Spring 2021 after December 4th will receive a short time period to withdraw from housing for no fee after receiving their assignment.
