Residence Agreement Contract Dates 2021-22

Residence Agreement Contract Dates

This resource exists to help students understand when their contracts may begin or end. Contract start and end dates are dependent upon the type of housing a student is assigned (graduate or undergraduate), their category of housing (single, couple, family), their academic program, and the location of their housing assignment.

The information on this page is intended as a guide only. Your actual contract dates can be viewed within the Axess Housing and Dining Portal after you are assigned to housing. Please note that you may be required to schedule a move-in appointment that differs from your contract start date in order to ensure a staggered arrival of students onto campus. If you are required to schedule a move-in appointment, your billing will begin on the date of your move-in appointment. Additional information about move-in appointments will be included in your assignment letter.

Hopkins Marine Station

This Residence Agreement applies to students who are assigned to and living in Hopkins Marine Station housing, although the dates of the actual contract may be different depending upon your academic program. You must be an enrolled Stanford student during each quarter of occupancy. A guaranteed quarter of housing is removed if you are an undergraduate student staying there in autumn, winter, or spring quarters; and an assignment priority year is used if you are a graduate student staying there during autumn or winter quarter.

Summer Housing Contract Dates

Students who wish to live on campus for summer and do not have a full-year contract in graduate housing can apply through the summer Lottery process. The normal length of agreement for summer is June 18, 2022 until August 14, 2022, but if you have a spring quarter contract, you will have continuous housing between the two quarters (see below). Students with 8 or 10 week summer contracts may request to change contract lengths. Summer housing charges will be adjusted and fees apply depending on when the request is made. See the Housing Assignments website for details.

Matriculated Stanford Students in Graduate Summer Student Housing

Students living in Graduate Housing spring quarter who have full-year contracts do not need to apply for summer housing because it is included in their contract length. Students living in academic-year residences during spring quarter, who want summer housing or choose to move to campus before their autumn contract begins, should apply for summer housing.
