Storey House is an undergraduate resident theme house for Human Biology, devoted to developing an intellectual community among students interested in Human Biology topics at Stanford. Our house works to integrate the interests of students with a variety of different majors. In addition to exploration of human biology subjects, our theme house also collaborates with other themed houses on the row to facilitate interdisciplinary learning and to build relationships with our neighbors.
Storey House is also known for its extraordinary food; students and staff travel from across campus every other week for our extravagant brunches. Overall, the house has a very comforting feeling, as a result of the tight knit community.
It is our goal to foster a caring community and to provide a place where people can build lifelong relationships. It is our goal to foster a community that resembles our families at home and to provide a place where people can build lifelong relationships.
A Note from the Faculty Theme Affiliate, Lisa Medoff
Welcome to Storey House!
The upcoming academic year promises to be an exciting one for Storey House residents. Residents will have the opportunity to work with ATAs to develop diverse activities related to HumBio themes, including hosting faculty and outside speakers at house events, field trips, and a student initiated course. The Program in Human Biology also works to provide house residents with the opportunity to personally meet visiting speakers coming to campus for HumBio classes and events.
If you have any ideas for events or faculty you would like to host, please contact me. We are very much looking forward to the coming year!
Information Regarding Mail and Package Delivery
Students living in Row Houses (Upper Row, Lower Row, Clusters 1, 2, or 3/Cowell) are strongly encouraged to follow the directions for the mail and package process provided on the Mail Delivery and Shipping page, as the PO Box address is each student’s official Stanford address and should be maintained during their entire undergraduate career. However, Row residents are also able to have mail packages delivered directly to their Row house by addressing mail and packages to the house's street address. Please be reminded that Student Housing/the University accepts no responsibility for packages sent to/delivered at individual residences.
