Contract Lengths for Students with Children

The length of your contract is based on your academic program, category of housing, location of your housing assignment and when you are assigned. Your specific contract length can be found in your Axess account after you are assigned.

All of the contracts for Students with Children at Stanford are full-year contracts.

The move-in date options vary by quarter—read more at Move-in Date Options.

Full-year contracts usually run from autumn through the end of summer term. If you move into your Stanford residence at the beginning of a term, your first month’s charges will be prorated to the first day of the term. If you are no longer enrolled and move out at the end of a term, your last month’s charges will be prorated to the last day of the term. The dates listed below are the general start and end dates for each quarter. If you are in continuous housing, there are no gaps in your contract between quarters. The housing charges for the next quarter start on the quarter end date of the previous term. If you renew your contract for a subsequent year, your contract is extended to September 1, the start of your new contract.

You may file a termination form on Axess in the R&DE Housing and Dining portal to end your contract at the end of any quarter even if you are enrolled under the condition you file by the deadline and have not renewed your contract for the following year. If you fail to give notice by the applicable deadline noted in the Residence Agreement, you will be charged a $100-$450 late termination of occupancy fee.

MSx students admitted for summer 2022: You will need to submit two applications during the First-Round Lottery: one for summer 2022 and another one for autumn 2022. The default summer contract start date is July 1, 2022 and will be extended to September 1, 2022 to match the start date of your autumn assignment. You will have continuous housing, but may be assigned to different housing for summer and the following academic year, if your autumn assignment is not available in the summer. Full-year contracts will end on July 2, 2023.

You will have continuous housing, but may be assigned to different housing for summer and the following academic year, if your autumn assignment is not available in the summer.
