Opened in the fall of 2015, Ng House is a lively central location for humanities activity on campus (broadly Art, Art History, Classics, Digital and Computational Humanities, English, History, Literatures, Languages, Linguistics, Music, Philosophy, Religious Studies, Theater and Performance Studies, and related interdisciplinary programs). It is home to students who share a passion for any dimension of the human experience. With its impressive facilities, Ng is a beautiful space and a wonderful communal resource both for its residents and other Stanford students.

The mission of Ng House is to provide an integrated learning and living environment, promoting a culture of informed inquiry, intellectual curiosity, and spirited participation. We host many events, and facilitate student-initiated and student-led workshops, dinners, and seminars. We organize field trips, welcome organizations from across campus, and work with the Center for Spatial and Textual Analysis, The Stanford Humanities Center, SLE, ITALIC, and related Stanford departments to bring leading scholars to the residence and to encourage vibrant humanities programming on campus.
