ResX Neighborhoods and Housing Assignments

The Undergraduate Residence Governance Council shares a ResX update, including the neighborhood map and the undergraduate housing assignment process for the 2021-22 academic year.

Dear students,

We are writing today to share updates on ResX.

In February, we announced that we’re taking the next steps in launching the ResX initiative for fall 2021. Since then, we’ve been working with our teams in Residential & Dining Enterprises (R&DE), Residential Education (ResEd) and our student and alumni advisory boards  to begin implementing these steps with the goal of providing students long-term continuity and community in their Stanford experience. We have updated the ResX website , including the FAQ . Here are highlights.

Neighborhoods

As our president and provost shared in February, it is our most sincere hope that “our new neighborhoods will be your Stanford homes — they’ll be where late-night conversations turn into lifelong friendships, and where you’ll create and continue traditions that become cherished across generations of students.”

And now, we’ve got neighborhoods! Check them out on our website.

In consultation with students, we worked to prioritize:

  • More all-frosh housing, and all-frosh housing in every neighborhood.
  • All-sophomore housing in every neighborhood for the 2021-2022 academic year.
  • Ensuring every neighborhood meets a broad spectrum of disability accommodation needs.
  • Ensuring students can move from RF houses to a more independent style of living.
  • Ensuring every neighborhood includes Row houses and apartment-style living.

We’ve been talking with students about how to name our neighborhoods.  There have been a lot of great ideas including things like naming the neighborhoods after trees, elements and colors. We want to take some time to work with our community to find the right long-term names. We’d love to hear your ideas! Please share them here . Until then, we will be going with the most traditional of names, S-T-A-N-F-O-R-D. Each neighborhood will be one of the letters of the Stanford name (Neighborhood S, Neighborhood T and so on). This temporary approach reinforces how each neighborhood will be an integral part of our community as a whole.

Assignment process

Residential & Dining Enterprises (R&DE) will begin the neighborhood assignment process. This will be a three-step process:

  • Step 1: Rank your neighborhood preferences starting April 9, 2021.  All upperclass students will have the opportunity to rank their neighborhood preferences as individuals or in groups of up to eight people. This will be your home for the remainder of your time at Stanford.We know many of you haven’t yet had the opportunity to connect with each other. It is absolutely okay to pick a neighborhood solo! We expect that lots of you will be doing this, and there will be many opportunities to connect with your new neighbors once you get to campus this fall. You will receive an email with information about your choices and instructions to apply on April 9.
  • Step 2: Rank neighborhood housing choices and apply to live in a University Theme House, starting June 2021. You will be able to rank your housing choices within your neighborhood and apply to live in a UTH. Want to know more about University Theme Houses?  Look here!
  • Step 3: Pick a room, starting early August 2021.  You will be able to pick a room in your house. If you are solo and looking for a roommate, you have a couple of options:  (1) We will be working with the class presidents to help answer your questions about ResX, and they will host some opportunities to help you find people that you would like to live with next year. More information is coming soon. (2) We also know that many rising sophomores want the Stanford experience of being purposefully matched with a roommate as we traditionally do with our first-year students. We are working on an optional process to match rising sophomores. More information is coming soon.

Many of you have questions about how dining will work in the neighborhood system. Here are some answers:

  • Students on a dining hall meal plan will be able to use their meal plan in any dining hall , regardless of their neighborhood assignments.
  • Students will be paying the same meal plan cost, whether they live in an RF house with a dining hall, Row self-op house or the Suites. This will be a substantial reduction in meal plan costs for the Row self-op or Suites plans in comparison to previous years.
  • Students living in a Row house, Suite or co-op will be able to use up to five meal swipes per week and five guest meals per quarter in a dining hall. You’ll be able to eat with friends across the neighborhoods.
  • Students in co-ops will continue to pay less for a meal plan in exchange for sharing in the work of operating the house. In addition, co-op living will include dining hall meal swipes and guest meals. This means co-op residents will be able to eat with friends across the neighborhoods, participate in special neighborhood dining hall dinners, or stop by a dining hall when it is convenient to do so.

More to look forward to this fall

As we get ready for fall, we are committed to working with students to create opportunities for community and connection on campus. Here’s where you can learn more.

And as we continue to work our way through the implementation of ResX, we’d love to hear from you. Please share any thoughts and feedback here . Also, if you’d like to request a meeting, please click here . If you’d like to see what we are working on next, check out our current projects .

We look forward to building these new communities with you!

Pre-Assignment FAQ

Can i pre-assign to a house that is not in my neighborhood  .

Yes, Pre-assignment is available to students regardless of neighborhood affiliation. 

If I plan to go abroad or take a leave of absence during Autumn Quarter, is it still possible to pre-assign?  

No, only students who will be on campus in Autumn Quarter can be pre-assigned.

If I plan to go abroad or take a leave of absence during Winter or Spring quarters, is it still possible to pre-assign?  

In general, houses prefer that applicants intend to remain on-campus and in the theme house for the full academic year in which they are chosen for pre-assignment. This is so that students participating in these programs have the full benefit of the year-long program designed by the house leadership. Additionally, as pre-assignment is an annual process, houses generally have little control over who is assigned to fill mid-year vacancies. For the 2023 process, a question is included on the application to provide house leadership insight into applicants’ intent to remain on-campus for the full year so they may consider this information in their decision-making.

That said, there are various reasons students may choose to take a leave or go abroad in Winter or Spring after living in a theme house the previous quarter(s). Students choosing to do this should consider that s tudents returning from Winter abroad are not guaranteed a placement back into the theme house they lived in during the Spring; placement is based on availability. Spaces will not be held vacant in theme houses when students go abroad. 

Can I pre-assign and participate in fraternity or sorority recruitment?  

Yes, you are more than welcome to apply for Pre-Assignment and go through fraternity/sorority recruitment. However, submitting your Pre-Assignment application is a binding commitment to live in that theme house for the following year if you are selected. So, if you wish to retain your eligibility to live in a fraternity/sorority house for the following year instead, you must withdraw your Pre-Assignment application by the submission deadline. 

Students who are selected for pre-assignment are not eligible to live in a fraternity/sorority house for the following year, but they may join a fraternity/sorority if that fraternity/sorority allows newly recruited members to live outside their Greek house. 

Can I pre-assign as a 5th year?  

You will need to confirm with Housing Assignments that you are eligible to live in undergraduate housing and have at least 3 quarters of guaranteed undergraduate housing remaining. 

For the 2023 process, all Pre-Assignment applications will be individual with no group applications or assignments as a group. 

In recent years, various theme houses have allowed for students to apply for Pre-Assignment as groups– generally this was to address concerns about filling their spaces that have substantially decreased. The Pre-Assignment process and application system does not have the capability to manage group applications, and the additional step allowing for group applications required manual data entry, which lead to errors and substantial negative impacts on applicants. Returning to individual applications will ensure the process is equitable for all applicants.

Can I pre-assign into a house with one quarter of guaranteed housing remaining?  

You must be eligible to live in undergraduate housing and have at least 3 quarters of guaranteed undergraduate housing remaining. 

Can I pre-assign and apply for a residential student leader position (RA, ETA) as well?  

The residential student leader selection process occurs before pre-assignment.  If you are selected as a student leader, you cannot pre-assign.  If you are not selected as a student leader then you are welcome to apply to pre-assign.

Can I pre-assign and still be a participant in the OAE accommodations process? If so, what steps do I need to follow?  

Students who have special housing needs due to a disability or documented medical condition can apply for a housing accommodation through the Office of Accessible Education (OAE). Any student needing an accommodation who has not registered with the OAE previously should do so immediately. Registration and submission of the Housing Accommodation Request Form will be online through OAE Connect . If your pre-assignment application is accepted and your medical needs can be accommodated in your chosen residence, OAE will facilitate a medical accommodation for that residence.  If you cannot be accommodated in that particular residence, OAE will contact you about obtaining an assignment through the OAE assignment process.  Please make sure you are aware of all OAE deadlines and processes; you can find those here .

Do I need to submit a Housing Application if I apply for Pre-Assignment?  

Yes, you need to submit both a Housing Application and a Pre-Assignment application if applying for Pre-Assignment.

If I pre-assign into a house, but decide afterwards that I am no longer interested, can I withdraw from the house?  

All pre-assignment placements are binding, and once a student has applied and been accepted to a pre-assignment placement, they become ineligible to participate in the regular housing assignments process. If you would like to withdraw from the Pre-Assignment process, you must do so before the application deadline by visiting the Submit Application page and clicking “Withdraw Application.” 

What are the pre-assignment deadlines?  

Please check the pre-assignment web page for deadlines.

How do I find out more about pre-assignment requirements?  

Please visit the Pre-Assignment website   for the full requirements.

How do I find out about the criteria for each theme house?  

Please  visit the application website and view each house’s application to view their criteria.

Can I apply to more than one theme house?  

No, our University Theme Houses support very different themes, and the leaders of those communities are looking for students who have demonstrated interest in that particular theme. In our current process, applicants apply to one house, the house leadership reviews their applications, and then decides on which applicants to offer placement in the house using their unique criteria.

For many years, students applied to only one theme house (ATH, ETH, or co-op). For 2021-22 and 2022-23, to address concerns that these communities would struggle to fill bedspaces due to COVID and the neighborhood model launch, we split our formerly single process into two processes, with a rank/match process for co-ops and an alternate process for academic/ethnic theme houses. While these changes somewhat helped address the filling concerns initially, data from 2022-23 suggest the supplemental steps are not needed to support these communities’ filling– in general, these communities had more applications than spaces last year. Returning to the single house application process provides a simpler and more efficient experience for both applicants and house leadership.

No - the pre-assignment process requires each person to submit an application separately, and applicants are considered as individuals. Group applications are not supported and will not be considered. 

Can I edit my application after submission?  

Unfortunately, applications cannot be edited after submission. If you've already submitted the application, you'll have to withdraw the application, make your edits, and submit again.  As long as you do this by the deadline, your application will be counted. 

Can I withdraw my application?  

If you would like to withdraw from the Pre-Assignment process, you must do so before the application deadline by visiting the Submit Application page and clicking “Withdraw Application.”   Applications cannot be withdrawn after the application deadline.  All pre-assignment placements are binding, and once a student has applied and been accepted to a pre-assignment placement, they become ineligible to participate in the regular housing assignments process.

Are late applications accepted?  

To preserve equity among all applicants and in fairness to those who submitted by the published deadline, we cannot accept late applications.
