Moving In

Moving Out

Welcome to the Farm!

Use the information on moving in to help you prepare for your move to Stanford. It answers many of your pre-arrival questions about your residence, what to bring, where to stay if you want to arrive before your move-in date, and more.

If you are a new undergraduate student, visit the Undergraduate Academic Life website to learn more about academics, the Stanford community, and practical matters, and the Residential Education site for information about your residential community. If you're a graduate student, you can visit the Graduate Life Office.  Summer Visitors should refer to Summer Session for specific information.

Vacating Your Room or Apartment

Stanford houses students, conference attendees, and other visitors throughout the year. It is essential that you vacate your room or apartment by your move-out deadline so Student Housing staff has time to prepare it for new residents or visitors. Check the graduate or undergraduate calendar for posted move-out dates; your Housing Front Desk Coordinator also will have them.

If Student Housing custodians need to clean and repair property in common areas, you and your roommate/s will share the costs equally if we can’t identify the responsible party.



We are very excited to have you in residence at Stanford. All of us in Student Housing are here to help and support you in getting settled into your new home and to provide you with outstanding service and assistance during the coming year.
