The Munger Graduate Residence, available to graduate students in all disciplines, with priority given to Law School students. All units—consisting of standard and premium studios, one-, two-, and four-bedroom apartments—include a private bath for each student. Most four bedroom apartments also include a guest bathroom. All units are furnished with beautiful custom-designed furniture.

This premier, architecturally distinctive property features exceptional campus views, beautifully appointed, fully-furnished air-conditioned apartments with open floor plans, spacious living rooms, private bedrooms and en-suite bathrooms, contemporary full kitchens, and other high-quality services and amenities.

These apartments offer generous square footage (utilities included), as well as green, sustainable features.  Both nine- and twelve-month contracts are available.

Made possible with a generous gift from Charles T. Munger, Vice Chairman of Berkshire Hathaway, and his wife Nancy Munger (BA '45), the Munger Graduate Residence is a new concept in interdisciplinary living and learning at Stanford University.

Located at the heart of Stanford campus and the center of university life, the Munger Residence is intended to foster community and interaction. The design of the complex emphasizes open common areas, and the architecture fosters a sense of community and cross-disciplinary discussion. The donor’s vision is that students from Stanford Law School and Stanford University’s other top-ranked graduate schools and departments will come together to live, study and exchange ideas in this extra-ordinary setting.
