Campus Mental Health Resources
Brandeis takes the mental health of its graduate students very seriously. As such, the Brandeis Counseling Center (BCC) is available for all graduate students to use with no out of pocket expense to them. Additionally, in January 2019, a new community therapist will serve the science community directly by providing one-on-one therapy sessions in the science complex, free of charge.

Brandeis students have flexibility in choosing to live in a big city (Boston), small city (Waltham) or suburbs - all are easily accessible.
Some students choose to stay close to Brandeis and live in the Waltham area. Waltham is a small city of over 60,000 residents. The city's large number of multi-family dwellings offers a variety of housing opportunities to students.
Since Waltham is only 12 miles due west of Boston, some graduate students choose to live closer to Boston. The Brandeis-Roberts MBTA Commuter Rail stop is a short walk from the campus. Boston and Cambridge are typically only 20-30 minutes away via the commuter rail.
Brandeis Housing Resources:
- The graduate housing Facebook group is a great place to view and post housing opportunities.
- Find affordable housing, housemates and roommates by subscribing to the listserv. Send an email to email@example.com to share a posting with other listserv members. Enter a title for your posting in the subject line and attach up to six photos.
- Diggz is a free roommate matching resource that connects you to like-minded prospective roommates with similar lifestyle attributes and preferences (roommates within Diggz may include Brandeis students and non-affiliated individuals).
