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):

  • 318 of those assigned were Graduate School of Business assignments to the GSB Residences.
  • 44 of those assigned were exempt medical accommodations or staff assignments.
  • All of the 12 unassigned new students restricted their choices and so are no longer guaranteed. They will still maintain a high priority for assignment.

Renewals:

  • 2524 single graduate students were eligible to renew their contracts for the 2018-19 and bypass the Lottery.

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

  • 2 of those assigned were Graduate School of Business assignments to the GSB Residences.

  • 101 of those assigned were exempt medical accommodations or staff assignments.
  • 7 additional students with low housing priority were assigned.

Continuing Graduate Students without Housing Priority:

  • 3 of those assigned were Graduate School of Business assignments to the GSB Residences.
  • 31 of those assigned were exempt medical accommodations or staff assignments.
  • No other graduate students without priority were assigned.

Couples without Children Housing

All students who applied for Couple without Children Housing by the deadline were given a random number from 0001 to 1000. (Current students living in Couple without Children Housing who renewed their housing contracts were not given application numbers.)

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

  • 14 of the unassigned new couples without children listed restricted choices and are no longer guaranteed housing, but will still maintain a high priority for assignment.

Renewals:

  • 492 couples without children were eligible to renew their contracts for the 2018-19 and bypass the Lottery.

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