Sublicensing in Graduate Housing
Students in graduate housing may sublicense their rooms/apartments under certain circumstances if established procedures are followed. Please be sure to read through the pages listed below to be sure that you are eligible to sublicense and that you agree to adhere to the sublicensing policies.
- Undergraduates and co-terminal students who have not completed their senior year or achieved graduate status are not eligible to sublicense
- Casual or temporary staff are not eligible to sublicense
- Extended family of students are not eligible to sublicense
- Sublicensing is not permitted within off-campus subsidized housing
- Unauthorized activity includes attempting to make a profit from the housing space, renting to people not eligible to take a sublicense, or renting out spaces that they have no authority to sublicense
- Violating the sublicensing policies and/or the Residence Agreement risks permanent loss of housing privileges, violation fees (minimum charge is $450), and referral to the Office of Community Standards for judicial review
Stanford students may post a listing for their space in graduate housing in order to sublicense for up to one term per academic year. There is a 2 week minimum sublicense period. Subleases under 2weeks will not be approved. Current or incoming Stanford affiliates who are looking for a short-term room or apartment may view the listings. A Sublicense Agreement form and other documents must be submitted for review and approval before an agreement can be finalized.
Sublicensing dates per term:
Spring: March 24 - June 25
Summer: June 19 - August 31
Autumn: September 1 - December 31
Winter: January 1 - March 25
Note: In order to comply with county orders related to COVID-19, and to support the health of our residents and greater community, sublicensees are subject to the university testing and vaccination requirements, as outlined on the Stanford Health Alerts website. Please continue to check back periodically for updates. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
