Building Security

Brandeis University, its buildings, grounds and parking areas are properly posted as private property and available for use by all community members and their guests. Unauthorized persons found on campus will be deemed trespassers and subject to criminal prosecution.

To ensure a safe environment, all administrative buildings are secured at the earliest possible hour, given their projected use each day. The exterior doors to all the residence halls are locked 24 hours a day. During extended breaks the exterior cores of the residence halls are changed to limit access to the buildings.

Residents must use their exterior door keys or campus card to gain entrance to the residence halls. Each year the exterior door locks are changed to ensure the safety and security of the residents.


Solicitation on campus grounds is strictly prohibited unless authorized by the Department of Community Living.
