Shared interests -- and living space

WALTHAM

Brandeis University in Waltham is one of a growing number of universities and colleges that are offering "thematic housing," the Globe reports in a front-page story today.

Brandeis offers two residence hall suites for students interested in "Justice, Service & Change." It also offers thematic housing for students sharing an interest in global affairs, health and wellness, and the arts.
