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.
Neighborhood Key Principles
Ensure personal and intellectual growth for every student
Support and advance student health & well-being
Build community & a sense of belonging for students
Advance equity & inclusion on our campus
What’s Next for the Neighborhoods
Building linkages between the first-year curriculum on civic, liberal and global education and the neighborhoods.
Working to determine long-term names for the neighborhoods.
Designing how we can change the use of common area spaces to give students more opportunities to gather and be creative in their neighborhoods.
Working to develop a capital and fundraising plan for new and enhanced facilities.
Measuring Our Progress
We would like to congratulate the 5,577 of you who completed the housing assignment process! Here are initial data we’re tracking to understand the impact and effectiveness of the neighborhoods.
