Self-op houses are undergraduate houses that are typically small (fewer than 60 students) and offer an intimate community experience for the residents. Self-op houses usually have a commercial kitchen located within, where a dedicated chef prepares and serves meals for the house, and which is open on weeknights for students to grab snacks or prepare late night meals when the chef isn’t preparing food. Unlike co-ops, meals are prepared by a chef or provided via dining hall meal swipes, and custodial service is provided. Residents are usually expected to volunteer for an occasional cleaning shift to help keep the kitchen clean after student use.
In self-ops, rooms are categorized as premier rooms (singles and 2-room doubles) or standard rooms (1-room doubles, triples, quads, quints).
Additionally, self-op houses typically have a large lounge and dining area, that often serve as the social hub of the house where students study, gather for events and spend informal time together.
Each self-op is unique, and the level and variety of social and educational activities varies according to student preference.

|Students living in Row Houses are strongly encouraged to follow the directions for the mail and package process provided on the Mail Delivery and Shipping page, as the PO Box address is each student’s official Stanford address and should be maintained during their entire undergraduate career. However, Row residents are also able to have mail packages delivered directly to their Row house by addressing mail and packages to the house's street address. Please be reminded that Student Housing/the University accepts no responsibility for packages sent to/delivered at individual residences.

Residential Education offers a pre-assignment system for University Theme Houses. This process allows Resident Fellows, Faculty Affiliates, and house program staff to pre-assign, before the annual housing assignment process, the entire house with students who complete a pre-assignment application and meet specific requirements. See the Residential Education website for detailed pre-assignment information.
