Community Housing: Listings

The Stanford housing listing database at contains all current housing opportunities listed for Stanford affiliates  through the Community Housing office. It includes rental listings of available rooms, apartments, cottages, duplexes, houses, condominiums, townhouses, house-/pet-sitting positions, and work exchanges in the communities surrounding Stanford.

We welcome anyone in the community to submit a rental housing listing; however, access to the listing database for housing searches is restricted to current and incoming Stanford students, faculty, staff, postdocs, and visiting scholars and researchers.

Search for Housing Listings

There are two ways to access the rental listings. Current Stanford affiliates will need to use a Stanford email address to create a "student" user account with Places4Students (you will log in as a student regardless of your status at Stanford). This user account will allow you to access the restricted rental listings through the Places4Students web site. Incoming Stanford affiliates who do not yet have a Stanford email address will need to request a temporary user name and password in order to access the rental listings. In order to get a user name and password, incoming Stanford affiliates will have to provide proof of Stanford affiliation, after which they will be able to log in to the Places4Students web site as a "student" in order to view listings.
