Off Campus Living

The Brandeis campus is in Waltham, Massachusetts. Our graduate students live throughout the city of Waltham and the greater Boston metro area. The vast majority live in Waltham, but Brighton and Somerville are also popular. Students often live with housemate(s), in multi-family houses, condos or apartments that may have 3+ bedrooms.

Please use our Brandeis off-campus housing site to start your search. The site has links for Brandeis students, faculty and staff as well as for property listers. When students sign in with their Brandeis ID, they can view listings either by the property itself or through the "Roommate Finder."


The Office of Graduate Affairs provides information to students as a courtesy to help with finding suitable housing for students attending Brandeis University. The information is for the use of Brandeis students and is only updated periodically.

Brandeis University accepts no responsibility for the reliability of the information provided or those listing with the department. Contact with persons listed herein will be conducted independently of the university. Brandeis University will not be involved in any negotiations between you (the leaseholder) and any land owner, property owner, student, prospective student or realtor.
