Groups: All students in the Stanford Summer International Honors Program are housed together in the same residence, therefore, groups are not allowed. Please select “I am not applying with a group.”

Residence Choices: Although you will see many housing options listed, there’s only one residence assigned to Stanford Summer International Honors Program students.
