Residential Life

Your education doesn’t begin and end at the classroom door.

At Stanford GSB, you will also learn from a community of people eager to share their experiences and knowledge. Stanford’s residential environment was designed to foster these connections.

Stanford MBA students have three main residential options: Stanford GSB Residences, Stanford on-campus housing, or off-campus housing.
