Assignments were offered first to single students who were living in Autumn only housing locations (Mirrielees and the Suites)  followed by guaranteed first-year students, high priority first-year students, continuing students who have not used all of their housing priority years, coterminal students, continuing students who have used all of their years, and finally nonmatriculated students. Within each priority assignment group, students were assigned by Lottery number.

Single Students: In the Waiting List assignment round, we were able to accommodate all of the students moving from autumn only housing locations (Mirrielees and the Suites), the guaranteed and high priority first-year students, half of the continuing students with priority years, and coterminal students living in autumn only housing. We were unable to assign some of the continuing students with priority years, some of the coterminal students and the continuing students without priority years.

Couples without Children: We were only able to accommodate guaranteed students and high priority students. We were unable to assign the other students who applied.

Students with Children: We were able to assign the guaranteed students, a few of the high priority first-year students, and one continuing student needing a medical accommodation. We were not able to accommodate all of the students currently living on campus who applied to move into family housing or the students applying from off-campus.

If you were unassigned in this round, move your application to the continuous assignments round.  We will continue to assign students as we receive additional cancellations between now and the fifth Friday of Winter Quarter.

References to students seeking assignment apply to students who do not currently have a housing assignment for 2016-17. Students seeking reassignment refers to students who were assigned in the Lottery and are seeking a reassignment to a higher assignment preference within the same housing category.

Single Students: In the Waiting List assignment round all new incoming graduate students and continuing graduate students with housing priority, who were willing to live in any residence (including the off-campus subsidized housing), were assigned. There are still new incoming graduate waiting for housing because they either limited their choices or applied after the second round deadline. The only coterminal and continuing graduate students who were assigned to housing in this round were special exemptions for students with documented medical needs, law students with a priority to Munger or were assigned to Oak Creek two-bedroom, triple occupancy apartments or the Suites at Governor’s Corner.

Couples without Children: In the Waiting List assignment round a number of the new incoming graduate students who were willing to live in any residence, including all the off-campus subsidized housing were assigned. There are still a number of guaranteed and high priority new incoming graduate student waiting for housing. The only coterminal and continuing graduate students who were assigned to housing in this round were special exemptions for students with documented medical needs or law students with a priority to Munger.

Students with Children: In the Waiting List assignment round all the students with children were assigned if they listed every housing option.

Single Graduate Housing

All single students who applied for graduate housing by the deadline were assigned a random application number from 0001 to 3500. (Current students living in Single Graduate Student Housing who renewed their housing contracts were not given application numbers.) Students who requested to be in a group were given a common number.

New graduate students who apply by the first-round Lottery deadline and select that they are willing to live anywhere on campus are guaranteed housing. Munger and the GSB Residences are not automatically assigned out of the final choice “assign me anywhere on campus” due to their price. These options were only assigned to students who specifically listed them on their applications.

New Graduate Students (who will be in their first year of graduate study at Stanford):

  • 247 of those assigned were Graduate School of Business assignments to the GSB Residences.
  • 29 of those assigned were exempt medical accommodations or staff assignments.
  • 7 of the unassigned new students are still guaranteed because they indicated that they were willing to live anywhere.
  • 28 of the unassigned new students listed restricted choices and so are no longer guaranteed. They will still maintain a high priority for assignment.

Renewals:

  • 2719 single graduate students were eligible to renew their contracts for the 2016-17 and bypass the Lottery.

Continuing Graduate Students with Housing Priority (PhD, JSD, MD, JD):

  • 10 of those assigned were Graduate School of Business assignments to the GSB Residences.
  • 65 of those assigned were exempt medical accommodations or staff assignments.

Coterminal Students:

  • 21 of those assigned were exempt medical accommodations or staff assignments.

Continuing Graduate Students without Housing Priority:

  • 2 of those assigned were Graduate School of Business assignments to the GSB Residences.
  • 51 of those assigned were exempt medical accommodations or staff assignments.
