Here’s an update, invitation to submit your feedback, and how to get involved. We’re entering our second year of implementing a neighborhood model for undergraduate housing at Stanford. The core vision for our neighborhoods is to foster a campus where students are connected to one another and connected to their home, and where they have autonomy to explore the campus and their passions, but always have a consistent “home base” to which they can return.
