About the Buildings

Named for Donald Kennedy, who served as Stanford’s president from 1980 to 1992, the Kennedy Graduate Residences consist of four four-story buildings with exceptional campus views.


This residence is connected to the campus' Central Energy Facility which supplies hot and chilled water for heating and cooling. The energy plant reduces greenhouse gas emissions for the campus by 68% per year, and water consumption by 33% compared to the previous steam plant. The plant reduces energy used to heat and cool residential buildings by 40%.
