Cholmondeley's Coffee House (Chum's)


Cholmondeley's (Chum's) is Brandeis' student run coffee house, tucked away in the historic Castle and named for a bloodhound belonging to the campus photographer. Throughout its history, it has played host to, among others, Tracy Chapman, the J. Geils Band, Joan Baez and the first American performance of Genesis.

How do I Book Chum's? 

Sorry, we are not currently taking reservations at this time. Once we resume normal operations in the fall, Union accredited organizations can book chums for a $50 rental fee. Additional charges may occur if the events take place outside of operating hours. Clubs may not charge admission to events, but donations may be collected.
