The Brandeis Intercultural Center serves as the umbrella office for 15 diverse student clubs and organizations.

The center is dedicated to creating a haven of respect, education and celebration that aims to develop critical consciousness and awareness of the myriad cultures of Brandeis University. It also works to foster a welcoming community where diverse experiences and perspectives are valued and dedication to the understanding of cultures and ethnicities is essential.


The center, located on the lower level of Swig Hall in East Quad, features a spacious resource room equipped with computers and printers, a small lending library of cultural books and videos, and a diverse array of cultural publications. It also has a conference room, multipurpose room, comfortable lounges, a patio and kitchen facilities, all of which can be reserved online.
