Overview

Stanford is one of the most desirable places to live in all of the Peninsula. It is located, not only at the heart of Silicon Valley, but also in the center of one of the most prestigious universities in the world.

 

Undergraduate and graduate students live in on-campus housing and designated student villages. Single-family homes are well-maintained and occupy relatively large lots, surrounded by natural greenery and open spaces. Their proximity to the many departments of the university ensure ease of access, and the relative lack of a commute is a sought-after feature anywhere in the Bay Area. Best of all, homes in this community are a relative bargain compared to neighboring cities.

 

But there’s a catch—you have to be an approved faculty member or staff executive to be eligible to buy a home in Stanford on land that is leased by the university. If you’re a qualified buyer, you may be able to take advantage of special programs that provide housing allowances or mortgage assistance.

 

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Desirable housing with relatively large lots
  • Qualified buyers may have financial benefits
  • Ease of access to both Stanford and Palo Alto
  • One of the most prestigious universities in the world
