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.

Residence Halls & Counselors

Participants attending the Summer Arts Institute are housed in residence halls that are used by Stanford undergraduates during the regular school year. Rooms for boys and girls are on separate floors, or in separate parts of the residence. Residential Counselors also live in the dormitories and serve as teaching assistants for the program. 

Dining Halls & Meals

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.
