Some of Stanford's on-campus residences offer special academic, cultural, social, or leadership programs. Several residences sponsor intensive foreign language study while other residences are co-ops. Co-ops offer a space where the cooking and cleaning for residents is performed by the students who live in the house.
One of the core tenets of the housing assignments process is to support these unique residential programs through the University Theme House Pre-Assignment process.
Students who want to live in a residence with a University Theme House can come together with other students to create a community committed to exploring a topic, lifestyle, language, or culture.
