Housing and Dining

Students eating in dining hall

Be our guest! Beginning a new chapter of your life at Brandeis means new friends and new food. As you begin to develop a routine as a college student, there is plenty of help along the way.

On-Campus Housing

On-campus housing is overseen by Community Living.  New students (first year, midyear and transfer) should review Community Living's webpage dedicated to new students as well as their guide of what to bring...and what not to bring! You can also learn more about our different residence halls.


Brandeis Hospitality offers a variety of different meal plans for students to suit every appetite. Brandeis Hospitality has it all, from all-you-care-to-eat options in Sherman and Lower Usdan, to caffeine fixes at Starbucks or Dunkin; from Einstein's Bagels in the Shapiro Campus Center to a variety of kosher dining options at Sherman and Louis' Deli, there is always something new to try!
