About the Buildings

Located in the heart of Stanford's campus, the Munger Graduate Residence is intended to foster community and interaction. The design of the complex emphasizes open common areas, and the architecture fosters a sense of community and cross-disciplinary discussion. The donors' vision is that students from Stanford Law School and Stanford University’s other top-ranked graduate schools and departments will come together to live, study and exchange ideas in this extraordinary setting.

Made possible with a generous gift from Charles T. Munger, vice chairman​ of Berkshire Hathaway, and his wife Nancy Munger, '45, the Munger Graduate Residence is a new concept in interdisciplinary living and learning at Stanford University.


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%.

All Munger apartments are outfitted with a smart thermostat, designed to keep the residents comfortable. They also have a "smart away" feature that allows the thermostat to default to an energy conserving mode when no one is home.
