Gerhard Casper Quad

This residence is a part of Neighborhood F


Gerhard Casper Quad consists of four residences and the Gerhard Casper Dining Commons. The four residences that make up the quad are Ng House, Kimball, Castaño and Lantana Halls. For Autumn 2020 they will house approximately 480 students in a singles and two-room doubles. 

Gerhard Casper Quad was dedicated in honor of Gerhard Casper, Stanford President from 1992 - 2000, on May 31, 2016.

Kimball Hall was named for former Stanford trustee William Kimball and his wife, Sara. When Kimball was in his junior year as an economics major, he found an unusual way to help pay his tuition- selling Coca Cola as the campus franchisee.  “Back then,” he recalled, “it was all on the honor system—anyone who wanted a Coke just signed their name on a sheet of paper and left the money.”

Ng House is the Humanities theme residence, and home to students who share a passion for any dimension of the human experience
