Live on Campus

Residential space is limited. Apply early.

Join a community of students and residential staff that come to Stanford from all over the world, bringing with them a variety of backgrounds, cultures, and experiences to share.

Stanford Summer Session is an eight-week program.


  • Stay in a classic undergraduate residence hall.
  • Residences will have a lounge, common area, laundry facility, and computer cluster with printer.
  • You will most likely have a roommate and you may be placed on co-ed floors.


  • Eat meals with fellow students in a nearby dining commons.
  • Choose from a variety of nutritious, sustainable and delicious food choices.
  • Dining options support students with food allergies, religious requirements, medical needs, and vegan/vegetarian diets.

Residential students* must take a minimum of 8 units (two to three courses). 

*Residential graduate students may take fewer than 8 units as long as they don’t require an I-20 from Stanford.
