Among the treasures of the Stanford housing system is choice.
In the new neighborhood model, we aim to preserve the opportunity for choice and exploration during a student’s time at Stanford by continuing to offer theme housing. We will have two types:
Neighborhood Theme Houses
Each neighborhood can create neighborhood theme houses, under the direction of the neighborhood’s community council. These theme houses can be changed annually and are only open to the residents of the neighborhood.
University Theme Houses
These houses are available to students from every neighborhood and can be up to 25% of the bed space in a neighborhood. Students apply to live in these houses. University theme houses include academic theme houses, ethnic theme dorms and special interest houses such as co-ops and housed fraternities and sororities.
