Residential & Dining Enterprises’ Escondido Village Graduate Residences (EVGR) project will provide housing to single graduate students and couples without children. The four 10-story buildings will provide 2,431 new beds and on-campus amenities. 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.
Regional Site Plan
The EV Graduate residences will be comprised of four 10-story residential buildings, with wings ranging from 6 to 10 stories high. The new facilities will provide 2,431 new beds for singe graduate students and couples without children and three Graduate Life Office Assistant Dean apartments.
The complex will feature recreational areas, patios in smaller courts, and social spaces that support activities such as grilling, picnicking, and volleyball. Parking for the EV Graduate Residences will be found at surface level (394 stalls), the Thoburn Court Parking Garage (366 stalls), and the Manzanita Parking Structure (860 stalls).
Each residential floor will have a laundry room, a wellness room, a kitchenette/TV lounge, huddle rooms, and four-stream recycle/trash chute rooms. Each building will feature a honorific 2-story lounge, a USPS mailroom with mailboxes and parcel lockers, a game room, music practice rooms, and all-gender restroom in the lobby.
Complex-wide commons amenities will include the EVGR front desk (B), Student Housing Staff Office (B) and Graduate Life Office (C), and public restrooms (B & C). A café and a multipurpose room will be available at the Pavilion. Building B will feature meeting rooms, community rooms, music/recital rooms, a yoga studio, and game rooms. Building C will have meetings rooms, a market (roastery/micro-market/online store), a dance studio, a theater, computer clusters, a maker space (for art or other messy activities), a mother’s lactation room and kid’s playroom.
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.
