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). 

Students will not be able to automatically renew their housing assignments in off-campus subsidized housing. However, we may be able to assign some off-campus students back into their same apartments. Students who would like to stay, should rank their current off-campus housing assignment as the first choice on their housing application.

Students who are applying for the same category of housing and have one year of medium housing priority remaining, will receive a special assignment priority and will therefore be considered early on in the assignment process.

While off-campus housing options will be available to rank on the 2021-22 Lottery application, assignment to these spaces will be based on the overall applicant demand and COVID-19 related requirements.  Because we do not know the number of spaces we will assign off-campus, students listing these choices should also rank on-campus housing options.  It is important to note that students assigned to these off-campus complexes may have to relocate to campus during the academic year if demand for on-campus housing changes.  Students will not be able to renew for 2022-23.
