Single Graduate Summer Eligibility and Guarantee

Single Graduate Summer Eligibility and Guarantee

Graduate students or undergraduate students 25 years of age or older attending Stanford without a spouse, partner, or children are eligible for Single Graduate Housing.

Co-term students can only apply for graduate student housing in Axess. Co-term students wishing to live in undergraduate housing for the summer should submit a HelpSU ticket to request that Housing Assignments create an undergraduate housing summer application which can then be edited by the student to reflect contract date and residence choice requests.
