Prospective students and their families are encouraged to visit campus throughout the year. University campus tours are available most weekdays when classes are in session.

We encourage prospective students to contact us when they are planning on visiting campus so that we can arrange for them to meet with students and/or Hillel staff. Please contact us  to make these arrangements. Prospective students wishing to stay for a Shabbat should contact Hillel at least two weeks of your planned visit and we will do our best to find a student host for your Shabbat visit.

Kosher meals are available at the Sherman Dining Hall, on the ground floor of the Hassenfeld Conference Center. Meals can be purchased at the cash register for any meal, and the dining hall serves kosher food (with vegetarian options) at every meal. More information about Sherman Dining Hall hours can be found here. The Sherman Dining Hall closes during semester break and during Passover (Spring) break.


Hillel is located in the Usdan Student Center on the top floor.

Hillel’s diverse array of programs takes place in various locations across the Brandeis campus. Religious services take place in Brandeis’ Mendel and Leah Berlin Chapel and in other locations on campus. The Bet Midrash (a space devoted to Jewish study) is located on the lower level of the Shapiro Residence Hall.
