EV Graduate Residences will provide new graduate student housing facilities in Escondido Village. Housing primarily single graduate students or couples without children, four multistory residential buildings will provide 2,431 new beds and include related on-campus amenities. Residential buildings will range in height from six to ten stories. Once complete, the EV Graduate Residences will increase graduate student housing capacity on campus by almost 20 percent, meeting a critical university priority as Bay Area housing costs continue to rise.
As a new gateway from the core academic campus into Escondido Village, EV Graduate Residences will integrate into the neighborhood with four residence halls that include underground parking and complement existing mid-rise and high-rise residences (Quillen, Blackwelder, McFarland, and Hoskins) and the courtyard cluster neighborhood.
The social center of the complex will be a new community pavilion at the entry to EV Graduate Residences marked by arcades and an iconic entry tower. The pavilion will include food and beverage service, a ball room, a micro market, and outdoor social spaces within the arcades.
Other amenities will include dance and fitness spaces, music rooms, computer clusters, art and makers studios, children’s’ playrooms for families, several community rooms, and numerous huddle and conference rooms. Outdoor amenities include recreational lawns; recreational areas for games such as volleyball and badminton, barbecues and fire pits, outdoor fitness equipment, and a community garden.
An underground parking structure at Thoburn Court will provide parking with 366 stalls, and an additional 394 stalls of parking will be provided on site. A separate project will construct an underground parking structure at Manzanita Field for an additional 850 stalls of parking. The project also includes residential units design for special needs, and all facilities are designed to fully comply with ADA requirements.
EV Graduate Residences will reflect the distinct style and attributes of many of Stanford’s most beloved buildings. Attention to detail is evident throughout the project design and use of quality materials. The iconic entry tower will draw from memorable places on campus and serve as a landmark entry to Escondido Village.
