About the Buildings

About the Buildings

In 2000, with a generous gift from the Friends of the Hopkins Marine Station, Stanford Student Housing purchased a complex of apartments and cottages at 651 and 675 Belden Street. Known as the Stanford Hopkins Residences, the main Victorian house is divided into two units, each with shared spaces. The Floyd and Berlin Cottages offer smaller shared spaces. 

Support for the Stanford Hopkins Residences is provided by a Monterey-based property management company who works in coordination with Stanford Student Housing.
