    Traveling with guests?
    Due to space constraints, unfortunately we are unable to accommodate guests in attending event sessions. We prioritize the class observation and other event sessions for a select number of admitted students.

    However, guests are welcome to join you on the Brandeis campus and the Heller School. The Heller/Schneider building contains a cafe and large atrium downstairs with plenty of seating. Guests may also wish to visit the on-campus Rose Art Museum. Please contact us with questions or to request additional suggestions.
