A diverse system of housing provides students with a variety of educational settings including academic theme and focus houses, ethnic theme houses, self-managed and cooperative residences, apartments and suites in addition to traditional residences. Residences with first-year students, academically-linked houses and some upper-class houses have 35 faculty/senior staff serving as Resident Fellows. Students in peer leadership roles and administrative support staff advance the goals of Residential Education in all houses.
ResEd provides Stanford undergraduates a small community experience within a large research university. Most students on campus live in traditional residence halls. These vary by room type, availability to particular classes, and other factors. For more information about each house, click on Find a House or visit the R&DE Housing Options website. In addition to traditional residences, students may also reside in co-ops, self-ops, fraternity and sorority houses, or houses with pre-assignment programs.
Fraternity and Sorority Life (FSL) - Stanford University is home to several nationally known social Greek letter organizations. This vibrant and diverse community is as old as the university itself. While the university is host to both housed and unhoused organizations, all play a vital role in student life on campus and within the surrounding community. See our FSL page to learn more.
