Residential Life

Your education doesn’t begin and end at the classroom door.

At Stanford GSB, you will also learn from a community of people eager to share their experiences and knowledge. Stanford’s residential environment was designed to foster these connections.

Stanford MBA students have three main residential options: Stanford GSB Residences, Stanford on-campus housing, or off-campus housing. Whether you are single, have a spouse or partner, and/or children, you’ll find a housing option that will enable you to take advantage of our integrated living and learning environment.

Timing Your MBA Program Application for Housing

Admitted students have the option to enter Stanford’s housing lottery. To meet the deadline for Stanford’s housing lottery system, you need to submit your application to the MBA program in the first or second round. If you apply in round three, you will be eligible for a very limited number of rooms in the Stanford GSB Residences, and will be waitlisted in the Stanford housing lottery.
