Undergraduate Resources

The following resources are for undergraduates only. 

Academic Advising

The Academic Advising office provides academic support both individually and in small groups, with your primary academic advisor and your academic advising director (AAD). The Academic Advising office also provides specialized advising appointments for returning, pre-professional, transfer, and co-terminal students.

Residential Education 

The essential conviction of Residential Education is that living and learning should be integrated, not separate; that formal teaching, informal learning, and personal support in residences is integral to a Stanford education. The undergraduate residential experience is designed to foster diversity, equity, and inclusion, health and well-being, belonging and community, and intellectual and personal growth. The ResEd team includes live-in Resident Fellows and student staff, as well as professional staff including Neighborhood Program Directors, Resident Directors, and Community Coordinators all who provide support to students. 

Ethnic Theme Housing

There are many housing options available, but in particular members of the DACA/undocumented community may be interested in the ethnic theme housing.

  • Casa Zapata Casa Zapata is the Chicanx and Latinx ethnic theme house, celebrating the rich diversity of the Latinx community at Stanford.
  • Muwekma-Tah-Ruk meaning “House of the People” in Muwekma Ohlone, is an ethnic theme house created to celebrate the diversity of Native American, Alaskan Native, and Pacific Islander folks.
  • Okada is an ethnic theme house that fosters community and opportunities for exploration for any student who feels connected to the Asian-American community.
  • Ujamaa is an ethnic theme house with a focus on the history and culture of the Black diaspora, hosting programming to educate and create bonds in/within the Black community.
