Welcome (Back) to the Neighborhood

"What makes our neighborhood special—and all the neighborhoods special—is that there are a bunch of different houses and dorms. It’s a unique group of different communities, and it will be really fun to get to know all of them.” - Kelly Niethammer, ‘24

Neighborhoods were designed to be your home at Stanford, and now is the time to truly make it yours. Explore more information about the neighborhoods, connect with local staff, find out what events are happening and explore the types of houses found within each one. 

COVID-19 Guidance for Students

We want to assure you that we are taking steps to protect everyone’s health and safety. We invite you to join us in minimizing the prevalence and reducing the spread of COVID-19 on our campus.

Through the COVID-19 pandemic, more attention and awareness has grown around long standing issues of oppression and injustice.

Resources for Our Communities

Student Affairs offers our communities support and we are continually seeking ways in which we can provide resources to those who may need it, whether on or off campus. Take time to care for yourself and connect with friends, family, and other support. You do not have to experience anything on your personal journey on your own.

Supporting the well-being of all students at Stanford

The Flourish, May 2022

May is National Mental Health Awareness Month– a time for checking in with ourselves and others and finding resources to support us during this time. Although our individual struggles are unique, together we can learn to build a community of care where we feel comfortable leaning on the support systems available to us.
