Whether you are joining us in August or January, transfer students are strongly encouraged to participate in all Orientation events. Though you may have already participated in a new student orientation at a previous institution, our Orientation highlights all aspects of the Brandeis community - our resources, staff members, and fellow students - that are important for you to know.
You will be assigned an Orientation Leader and will be with a group of other transfer students, but you will also interact with other members of the Brandeis community. If you have any questions about transfer Orientation, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Only one car per student is allowed on campus when you arrive.
If you plan to bring a second car, it should go directly to J Lot. A shuttle will bring passengers and additional belongings back to the main campus. There will be signs from campus directing you to J Lot.
U-Hauls, trailers and moving companies are not permitted.
Free shuttles will be available for your use around campus. All shuttles are handicapped-accessible.
The Department of Orientation staff will provide assistance to anyone who needs it. Please email Director of Orientation Jenny Abdou to make arrangements prior to your arrival.
