Short-Term Grad Housing - How to Apply

Graduate Housing room


This housing is for matriculated Stanford graduate students needing short-term housing before the beginning of the autumn quarter – for those arriving before their on-campus housing is available and for those needing a place to stay while searching for off-campus housing.

Housing Options

This short-term housing is located in an undergraduate residence hall with single-gender shared group restrooms on each floor.  These are rooms in a residence hall – they are not apartments.

  • A private, single-occupancy  room for one person wishing to be alone in a room is $54.15 per night.
  • A bed in a shared room for one student wishing to be placed with another student of the same gender in a shared room is $44.10 per night. 
  • Both sides of a double-occupancy room for one student wishing to reserve a room for two people sharing a room (with two single beds) is $84.10 per night.
