Off-Campus Subsidized Apartments

Stanford has secured off-campus leases at the following apartment complexes in Palo Alto, Menlo Park, Mountain View, and Redwood City to help meet the high demand for housing. These subsidized off-campus apartments will be offered along with the on-campus options in the Lottery application.  These units will be furnished and your subsidized housing charges will include utilities and internet. 

Please note the following:

Sublicensing is not permitted within off-campus subsidized apartments.

Stanford University does not allow pets of any kind in off-campus subsidized apartments, even if a property is pet-friendly. 

The same guest policy as on-campus apartments applies:  No more than five consecutive days or five days total per quarter.

All off-campus housing contracts are full-year options (autumn through summer quarters).  You may renew your contract as long as you have priority years remaining and as long as Stanford University holds the lease for your apartment.
