EVGR-A Duan Family Hall

EVGR-A Duan Family Hall is located in east campus, with wings ranging from six to ten stories high. EVGR opened in 2020 and features a design that reflects the distinct style and attributes of many of Stanford’s most beloved buildings.

Mirrielees sits in handy proximity to Gerhard Casper Quad, Vaden, and other East Campus landmarks and offers a friendly environment a little removed from the hustle and bustle of Main Campus. The ideal Mirrielees resident will develop both self-sufficiency and interdependence.


Roble Hall, which turned 100 years old in 2018, is Stanford’s oldest continuously operating dorm. If you’re passionate about sustainability — about wrestling with the messy realities of implementing it on a daily basis — then we’d love you to apply to become a Roble Sustainability Leader. This is a chance to make a real impact on the world — and to have a lot of fun doing it.

Lagunita: Norcliffe/Adelfa

Norcliffe is composed of two buildings, Norcliffe Hall and Adelfa. Our goal as RFs is that students in both buildings feel part of one house community, and that they experience the community as welcoming and real. We affectionately call the house “Nordelfa,” creating one cohesive community. 

Lagunita: Meier/Naranja

Meier Hall opened in the 2016-17 academic year, as part of the Lagunita Court complex. It is named in honor of Stanford alumni Linda Meier '61 and Tony Meier '57. Naranja, also known as Casa Naranja, is also part of the Lagunita Court housing complex. Built around a lush central courtyard and dining hall, Lagunita was modeled in a Spanish style of architecture. 

Lagunita: Ujamaa

Ujamaa House was created as a concept in 1970 with a concentration of Black first-year and upperclassmen students living on East campus, and moved to its current location in 1976. Over the years, this African-American themed dorm has expanded its intellectual focus to include the entire African Diaspora.

Lagunita: West Lag

West Lag (Eucalipto and Granada) has a strong sense of history, community, and tradition. Our family atmosphere recognizes individual differences and diverse backgrounds and encourages you to handle the stresses of college life constructively.

Row: 1018 Campus

1018 Campus Drive is located in the northern part of campus. It is easily accessible to the heart of the Farm. 

Row: Xanadu

Xanadu—“the enigma of the Row”—is an inclusive home. We strive, above all else, to be a community where residents feel comfortable being themselves.
