Overview

Five eight-story buildings named after Stanford professors, Abrams, Barnes, Hoskins, Hulme and McFarland, rise above the trees in Escondido Village. Each building has 63 one-bedroom apartments for couples without children.  In McFarland, all units have been remodeled to enclose the kitchen and convert the living room into a second bedroom with a large closet and a locking bedroom door. McFarland is assigned as a junior two-bedroom, one bath apartment for two single graduate students or as a one-bedroom, one bath compact apartment for a couple.

Escondido Village’s mid-rise apartment towers were built of reinforced, textured concrete beginning in 1964 and have been renovated twice since. These buildings are discreetly spaced throughout the grounds of Escondido Village. 

Each apartment has a sliding glass door that opens onto a balcony. Lobbies, lounges and other common spaces provide areas for social activities.

About the Buildings

Abrams
Abrams honors Ephraim Douglas Abrams (1874 - 1956), who was associated with Stanford for more than 60 years, first as a Stanford undergraduate and graduate student, and later as a university professor of botany.

Barnes
One of Stanford’s first faculty members, Earl Barnes, came to the university in 1891 as a professor of education. Unconventional both in his life and research, Barnes explored such child development issues as color perception, religious consciousness, poetic instinct and imaginary friends.

Hoskins
Hoskins bears the name of Leander Hoskins (1860-1937), Stanford emeritus professor of applied mathematics. After earning advanced degrees in science and civil engineering from the University of Wisconsin, Hoskins taught at Stanford from 1892 through 1925.

Hulme
Hulme is named for Edward Maslin Hulme (b. 1868), one of Stanford’s first graduates, Dean of the College of Letters and Sciences, and Stanford professor emeritus of history.­ Hulme returned to Stanford in 1921 and taught history until 1937. Hulme wrote textbooks on English history and the Middle Ages, and his book on the Renaissance and Reformation was, for many years, the most popular text in the field.­

McFarland
Frank Mace McFarland (1869-1951) played a leading role in organizing Stanford’s Hopkins Marine Biological Station in Pacific Grove, where he served as director and co-director. McFarland came to Stanford in 1892 as an instructor and graduate student of histology, and later received his Ph.D. from the University of Wurzburg, Germany.
