Dharmic Prayer Space


The Center for Spiritual Life offers a safe space for students to explore their spirituality and find their place in the world, on their terms.

Whether students are rooted in a particular faith tradition or searching for answers to fundamental human questions, we are here. We have staff chaplains trained in different faith traditions who help students find a supportive community, access a non-judgmental spiritual mentor, and find opportunities to serve others.

Faith Communities

A rich array of faith traditions are celebrated in community at Brandeis.

Sacred Places

At Brandeis, students drive the presence of religious resources and worship opportunities.

Chaplains and Staff

Brandeis chaplains offer counseling, support and community to students of all faiths.
