Kennedy Residences

Residences for Couples Without Children 

Graduate and undergraduate students who are married or in a domestic partnership with a partner who will co-occupy an apartment with them at least 50% of each week are eligible to live in graduate couples housing. A domestic partnership is defined as two adults who have chosen to share one another's lives in an intimate and committed relationship. Couples housing is not intended for friend pairs, siblings, parents, or members of a student's extended family. Undergraduates may not apply for couples housing for summer if they are currently in single student housing and are applying for single student housing for the following year.

Couples without children are assigned to studios and one-bedroom apartments. Most of the one-bedroom apartments are located in Escondido Village mid-rise buildings. There are a limited number of one-bedroom apartments in Escondido Village low-rises, the GSB Residences and Munger Graduate Residence. Premium studios are located in Escondido Village Graduate Residences, Escondido Village Kennedy Graduate Residences and Munger Graduate Residence. Smaller standard studios are also an option for couples in Escondido Village, but are primarily intended to house one single student.

Two-student couples who are both enrolled, matriculated Stanford students are also eligible for a very limited number of one-bedroom plus den low-rise apartments in Escondido Village.

Apartments for couples without children are furnished with a queen-sized bed with the exception of the Escondido Village standard studios that are furnished with full-sized extra long beds.

In situations where both spouses/partners are Stanford students, only one student must be enrolled to maintain eligibility for housing. However, in one-bedroom plus den apartments, both students must be enrolled for the contract period or approved to be in housing while on leave (students can gain approval by using Axess and filing a petition with Housing Assignments).

Off-Campus Housing

Rental housing is available near Stanford, but the University is located in a highly desirable suburban area in the heart of Silicon Valley. Consequently, off-campus rental rates are relatively high compared to many other regions of the United States and even other parts of the Bay Area.

If you decide to live off campus, plan to arrive at Stanford at least two weeks early to take advantage of a wider range of housing choices.

You can check local rental listings, accessible only to Stanford students and affiliates, at Student Housing’s Community Housing website. You will be directed from there to the rental listings, which are available through the Places4Students website. You will either need a Stanford email address to view the rental listings, or may contact Housing Assignments for a temporary password.
