Durand has a small, intimate size that allows residents to get to know all of their neighbors and form a welcoming community. Durand's position on the Upper Row has led to strong connections with other houses. Throughout the year, the house hosts shared social events, such as backyard barbecues and Friday afternoon volleyball, bringing residents from different houses together.

Durand’s location, slightly removed from the main campus, creates a sense of ‘coming home’ from classes at the end of the day. Mayfield Playfield, a grassy field across the street from Durand, is a great place to play sports or work in the sun. The surrounding neighborhood of Upper Row faculty houses and Frenchman’s Park – a five-minute walk from Durand – allows for afternoon wandering or nighttime star-gazing to escape the bustle of the core Stanford campus, while surrounding Row houses still foster a sense of student community.
