Housing & Dining

Participants will get a taste of what life is like for Stanford undergraduates by living and eating at the campus residence and dining halls.

Living at Stanford

Program participants live in Ng House, Stanford's humanities-themed residence for undergraduates during the academic year. Participants live with others who share similar academic interests, and trained residential staff live in the residence with the participants to create a safe and welcoming community.

Rooms are assigned by gender, with male and female participants in separate areas of the residence, and typically on separate floors. Stanford Summer Arts Institute is committed to providing an inclusive, supportive, and comfortable residential environment for all participants, and gender-inclusive housing assignments can be provided.

Ng House has its own lounge, computer cluster, laundry facility, and common area. All rooms are equipped with an extra-long twin bed for each student as well as window coverings, desks and chairs, bookcases, dressers, and wardrobes. In addition, wireless connectivity is available.

Dining Halls & Meals

Stanford Summer Arts Institute participants eat in Stanford cafeteria-style dining halls, which serve a range of healthy options for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The dining halls provide vegetarian and vegan options at every meal, and will cater to special dietary needs such as kosher or gluten-free food. Mid-afternoon snacks are served daily at the residences. Participants can look forward to special catered dinners typically served once a week.
