Shipping Belongings

Brandeis is now accepting shipped items for August arrivals. Packages for January arrivals will be accepted after December 1.

Please use the following address to ship items to campus:

[Your Name, Residence Hall, Room Number]
Brandeis University
415 South Street
Waltham, MA 02453-2728 USA

Labeling Boxes

Label each piece clearly with your name, residence hall and room number. Make sure to ship your items one to two weeks before you plan to arrive, as late August is a busy time for many carriers.  

Shipping Companies

There are many companies that can ship your items to Brandeis. Be sure to check with your carrier before packing your items, as restrictions on size and weight often apply. We recommend that you tag your items with two address tags: one on the outside and one on the inside. We also recommend purchasing insurance on the items.

Claiming Packages in August

We are encouraging students to ship as much as possible to campus while keeping in mind to only pack and ship things that are essential for you to be comfortable on campus.We are encouraging students to ship as much as possible to campus while keeping in mind to only pack and ship things that are essential for you to be comfortable on campus. Information for August 2021 will be available at a later date.
