Privacy Settings

The university designates the following categories of student information as public "directory information”; such information may be disclosed by the institution for any purpose, at its discretion.

The university makes student directory information available electronically (as an online directory) at the start of the fall semester. If you do not wish for your name to appear in the online directory you must restrict the release of the “Name / On-Campus Info / Online Directory” category.

Current students may withhold disclosure of any category of information under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, and may use the personal privacy settings within Sage to restrict disclosure of directory information, all or in part. To access this function, log into Sage, navigate to the Personal Information section of the Student Center, and select "Privacy Settings" from the dropdown menu.

Changes to privacy settings may require up to 48 hours to take effect. Brandeis University assumes that failure on the part of any student to specifically request the withholding of public information indicates individual approval for disclosure.


Name / On-Campus Info / Online Directory

Names (primary, preferred, passport and degree names), campus email address, campus mailbox, campus mailstop, directory phone, campus address, residence hall address.
