Summer Matching in Graduate Housing
"Summer matching” may cause a student to be assigned to a residence not listed on his or her application. This occurs when a student applies for both summer and autumn housing. Housing Assignments will automatically assign a student to the same residence for Summer Quarter as they are assigned to for Autumn Quarter, pending availability.
Co-term students can only apply for graduate student housing in Axess. Co-term students wishing to live in undergraduate housing for the summer should submit a HelpSU ticket to request that Housing Assignments create an undergraduate housing summer application which can then be edited by the student to reflect contract date and residence choice requests.
Undergraduate students can request a reassignment within undergraduate housing during the summer term. See the undergraduate reassignment page. Reassignments are not offered for graduate students during the Summer Quarter unless medically necessary. Students should contact the Office of Accessible Education should the need arise.
Only students who are assigned to gender-neutral housing for Autumn and are assigned to the same residence for the summer will be considered for gender-neutral housing for Summer. Please submit a Gender-Neutral Housing Petition in Axess if this applies.
Transgender students may contact Jennifer Padilla-Wong, the Summer Housing Assignment Specialist, for a confidential assignment.
Couples without Children Housing
At Stanford, a domestic partnership is defined as an established, long-term partnership between two people with an exclusive mutual commitment in which the partners share the necessities of life and ongoing responsibility for their mutual welfare. Students may not apply for couples housing for summer if they are currently in single student housing and are applying for single student housing for the following year.
Meal Plans are required for all students living in Branner, Governor's Corner (residence halls, suites, and independent houses) and Wilbur, and optional for others. Meals will be served at Arrillaga Family Dining Commons and a dining hall on the west side of campus (the location has not yet been determined). For those who are unable to eat in a dining hall during the normal operating hours, box lunches and late plates are available by arrangement.
