Community Living

Reserve a Common Space

Community Living is excited to share our resources with faculty, students and staff at Brandeis. Carefully read instructions posted below on how to submit a reservation request. Please understand that the space has not been successfully reserved until you receive a confirmation email from Community Living staff.

All events in residence hall spaces must end by quiet hours. Events or meetings in residence hall spaces are for members of the Brandeis community and recognized Brandeis organizations. All residence hall space requests are approved at the discretion of Community Living.

The Reservation Request form is not monitored 24/7 and is not automatic. Therefore, we ask you to please allow 2-5 business days for your request to be processed. It is also important to note, the common spaces are tentative and are a first come first serve basis, which means last minute requests cannot be guaranteed. Please use the calendar on the reservation request page, please scroll down to view. We ask that you please select two alternative locations in the event that your first choice is not available. Once your reservation request has been processed you will receive an email from, either "APPROVED" or "NOT APPROVED", instructions will follow.

Thank you for your understanding and patience.
