Mirrielees

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.

Row: Robert Moore South (BOB)

Robert Moore South (BOB) is known for its extremely central location and therefore social nature, but few people realize it represents much more than just that. BOB is a self-op, the kind of house that students live in as a transition out of a dorm that requires a lot of personal responsibility.

Row: 585 Cowell

585 Cowell is well known for its location in the back of the Cowell cluster, which makes the house quiet and private. It is also a great location to go anywhere on campus, or hang out on Cowell lawn. The community at 585 Cowell is distinct, diverse and outgoing.

Row: Terra

Terra is the unofficial queer and trans-themed co-op and the community strives to foster a space that is safe for marginalized students. This translates to a commitment on the part of all residents to participate in conversations on intersectional (i.e. converging on a variety of identities such as race, gender, ability, religion, class, etc.) issues.

ZAP is a row house located in the Cowell Cluster. The social culture at ZAP is typically relaxed and wholesome! The house is known to allow student groups and residents to host parties and other social gatherings, and therefore has a very welcoming atmosphere to all students.

Wilbur: Arroyo

Arroyo is a place where we aim to develop and maintain a residence where curiosity, support and celebration of individual differences are paramount aspirations along with personal and academic growth. We strive to have a community where respect, inclusion, and safety are expected baseline values.

Wilbur: Cedro

Cedro is located on the east side of campus, in the community of houses known together as Wilbur Hall. Many in-house activities and “off-the-farm” events are planned throughout the year for both intellectual and recreational purposes. Our goal in Cedro is to not only be a community, but to be a family of lifelong learners, where everyone can openly share their sense of wonder, responsibility, curiosity, and kindness.

Wilbur: Junipero

Junipero, affectionately known as JRo, is located on the east side of campus, in the community of dormitories known together as Wilbur Hall. Many in-dorm activities and “off-the-farm” events are planned throughout the year for both intellectual and recreational purposes.

Wilbur: Okada

The Asian American theme house was established at Stanford in 1971 to create community and center the experiences of a very small and primarily first generation Asian American student population. Renamed in 1979 after John Okada who is recognized as the first Asian American novelist, Okada House continues to explore and celebrate the diversity of Asian American peoples, cultures, and languages in a historical and contemporary context.
