Student Service Bureau

Brandeis University Student Service Bureau logoThe Student Service Bureau (SSB), located in the Usdan Student Center Game Room, is a student-run business whose purpose is to offer services on campus that provide convenience for students and staff of the Brandeis community.

SSB has partnered with vendors who meet our standards in working with our student body. We receive a percentage of all sales and these funds go back to our customers, as well as the overall Brandeis community. In past years, we have used these funds to provide free events to students and offer discounted trips and tickets to New England area attractions, arts and sporting events.

New this fall, SSB is excited to be managing the Usdan Game Room and are pleased to announce that all games are now free to play with your Brandeis ID!
