Stanford – Escondido Village Graduate Residences
Given the high housing costs around the Stanford University Campus, the EVGR project was conceived to provide more cost-effective housing options to Stanford graduate students. Totaling 1.8 million square feet, EVGR is comprised of four 10-story residential buildings, with wings ranging from 6 to 10 stories high, and a Pavilion building. The new facilities provide 2,423 new beds for graduate students. Each residential floor includes a laundry room, wellness room, kitchenette/TV lounge and huddle rooms. Each building features a 2-story lounge, a USPS mailroom with individual mailboxes and parcel lockers, a games room and music practice rooms. Complex-wide features include great rooms, meeting rooms, a yoga and dance studio, public restrooms, a mother’s lactation room, a kids playroom, a maker space, market and roastery, technology hub, and theater. The Pavilion features a biergarten, café and a large multipurpose room.
