Usdan Game Room

As a service of the Student Service Bureau (SSB), all games in the Usdan Game Room are free to play!

Just drop-off your Brandeis ID with the SSB Customer Service Representative at the front desk and let them know what you'd like to play. The team member will provide you with video games, controllers, ping pong paddles and balls, Foosball ball, and pool cues, racks, balls and chalk. It's a great place to hang out, relax, play games, and watch TV--now with Roku Streaming! Remember to pick-up your ID after you clean and return the equipment.

Reserving Big Games and Outdoor Games for Events


Clubs and departments may reserve Big Games and Outdoor Games through the Student Service Bureau (SSB) at the Usdan Game Room. Please note that regular sized board games cannot be reserved or leave the Game Room, however, clubs and departments may reserve the Game Room to host events there. 

Equipment reservations are on a first come, first serve basis. Reservations are free of cost, however, there is a $50 fee if equipment is returned broken or missing parts.

*Please note that these are the games that used to be reserved through the Department of Student Activities. SSB will be handling all big games instead of the department.
