In order for misassigned students to be reassigned to EAST, 11 students assigned to EAST through the regular housing draw volunteered to give up their spots in exchange for assignment to other residences.
As Stanford’s ResX task force has — at long last and with no lack of controversy — come to an end with the publication of a report of housing recommendations. Unfortunately, the ResX report didn’t address the fundamental problems facing Stanford housing. I do think that some of the recommendations in the report make sense.…
While the ResX task force has planned a redesign of Stanford’s residential life around the idea that the campus would be divided into “neighborhoods” students would live in for four years, much of the details on how this will come into fruition have yet to be determined.
