In order to apply for housing, students must be able to access Axess, Stanford's online information portal. In order to log into Axess, students will need:

  • Stanford student status or acceptance of an admission offer
  • A Stanford University Network ID (SUNet ID) which can be set up at (allow one to two working days for processing)
  • A web browser with cookies and java script enabled

Students may apply for only one category of housing (single undergraduate, single graduate, couple, or student with children) for a given quarter. If a student's status changes, they must re-apply for housing in a new category.

To log onto Axess:

  • Log onto Axess
  • Select Housing and Dining from the Student menu
  • Select Apply for Housing and follow the prompts

IMPORTANT: Students needing housing for both summer and autumn quarters must submit two applications in Axess, one for summer and one for autumn.

The first round application deadline is May 7, 2018 for single undergraduate housing and May 10, 2018 for single graduate, couples, or student with children housing.

Updating or Withdrawing an Application

Students may edit or withdraw their applications in Axess up until the application deadline for the current assignment round. There is no penalty for editing an application or withdrawing it before the assignment round deadline.

To update or withdraw an application:

  • Log onto Axess
  • Select Housing and Dining from the Student menu
  • Select Edit or Withdraw

Assignment Results

First round assignment results will be sent via email and available to view in Axess on May 24, 2018 for single undergraduate housing and May 26, 2018 for single graduate, couples, and student with children housing.

Summer-Autumn Assignment Matching for Graduate Housing

If you are assigned to graduate housing for autumn quarter 2018, we will do our best to assign you to the same apartment for summer quarter 2018, regardless of your residence choices. Our ability to assign students to the same residence for summer quarter is limited by where we have availability in housing. In the event we cannot match your autumn quarter assignment, we will take into account your residence choices.
