Administration, graduate student families discuss housing plans at town hall

Graduate students with families and administrative members of the Student Housing division of Residential & Dining Enterprises (R&DE) met to discuss a construction project in Escondido Village in a town hall last Friday. Hosted by the Graduate Student Council Housing Committee, the meeting addressed the creation of new single graduate housing units in place of existing graduate family courtyard homes.

Grad co-op for Stanford

When I moved into a graduate studio in Escondido Village last year, it felt like regression to freshman year. Although Stanford housing had tried to inject vitality into sanatorium corridors by hanging faded landscape pictures, the common space remained barren. Whereas I had inherited a rich menagerie of furniture and artworks from my friends who had occupied Happy House before me, my studio was bare without any trace of life or history.
