SIPP 2015 Housing and Meal Fees

SIPP is offering the following:
Studio Housing Package: $3,000

All participants in SIPP are required to live on the Stanford campus. This year, only studio apartments are available. The rate for a studio room is $3,000.

The above prices include the cost of the room and of all meals. Meals for SIPP participants include breakfast, lunch, and dinner for all full days during SIPP. The first meal served in the dining hall will be breakfast on Monday, July 13. The last meal provided will be breakfast on Saturday, August 1.

Meals will be served in a nearby dorm residence dining hall, which provides a wide selection of nutritious options. Meal cards will be provided at check-in and must be presented to the cashier at the dining hall at the time of each meal. Breakfast is at 8:00 AM, lunch is at 12:00 PM, and dinner is at 6:00 PM. Unused meals are forfeited and cannot be used at a later date.

No dining hall meal will be available to SIPP participants who choose not to attend a SIPP special event (the opening banquet, the closing banquet, and the beach picnic), each of which includes a meal.

There is a $125 fee for any lost key and a $15 charge for lost meal cards.

Stanford reserves the right to cancel SIPP 2015 and refund all fees paid if an insufficient number of people apply to participate.
