Escondido Village Graduate Residences

Welcome to Escondido Village Graduate Residences

Escondido Village Graduate Residences (EVGR) is Stanford’s newest on-campus residential community. EVGR is comprised of four 10-story residential buildings, with wings ranging from 6 to 10 stories high. The design reflects the distinct style and attributes of many of Stanford’s most beloved buildings.

EVGR’s apartments provide on-campus homes for single graduate students and couples without children, and three apartments for Graduate Life Office Assistant Deans.

At the center of EVGR is a common area featuring a marketplace, a pub and brewery where students can take beer-making classes, along with exercise and wellness rooms, music practice rooms, a children’s playroom and more. With so much to offer, EVGR is destined to become the heart of graduate student life on campus.

In addition to the R&DE Student Housing Service Center, EVGR includes both Graduate Life Office and R&DE Graduate Housing staff offices. ​

In support of the university’s zero-waste goals, these residences are equipped with a multi-stream collection system: organics; paper recycling; cardboard recycling; plastics, metals and glass recycling; and landfill. Sorting waste increases its reuse value. We encourage students to participate in this and other Cardinal Green practices.
