There’s a cool bit of Brandeis lore I want to share with you. Apologies if you already heard it before.
So, the housing lottery is kinda strange. It’s hard to know who has a good number, what sort of housing your number might net you, to look for others with good numbers you might want to be really nice to very quickly, etc.
Luckily, some students took some initiative a few years ago and set up The Brandeis University Unofficial Housing Registry. .
It’s really simple. You enter your name, number, year, and thoughts on housing. This information becomes public, and you can browse others’ numbers, etc.
It’s also kinda useful, and more useful the more people use it. So give it a try.
