Student Summer Housing

Stanford in Washington offers summer housing to Stanford students for a fee. We do not have an official program during the summer. 

Our cost for the summer is $5000, which includes room & board. Our move-in date is Thursday, June 16 and the move-out date is Monday, August 29. If you need housing outside of these dates we will do our best to accommodate that, but cannot make any guarantees just yet. 

Students residing at SIW for the summer will share a room with one other student. Each room has a bathroom ensuite that you will share with your roommate. 

We give housing priority to Stanford in Washington students and students who have fellowships or stipends through SIG & the Haas Center. Please fill out this Google form to indicate your interest. Please email stanfordinwashington@stanford.edu with any questions.

COVID 19 Update

Updated August 26, 2021

The Stanford travel policy for the Bing Stanford in Washington Program has been updated, as follows:

Travel associated with the Bing Overseas Studies Program (BOSP) and Stanford in Washington are exceptions and will be permitted for fully vaccinated undergraduates. Unvaccinated students who wish to participate in BOSP programs both abroad and in New York, or in Stanford in Washington, must begin the vaccine exception request process for travelers at least 4 weeks in advance of the program withdrawal deadline. Given current COVID-19 conditions, permission for travel through Bing Overseas Studies Program or Stanford in Washington is unlikely to be granted to unvaccinated undergraduate students in Fall 2021 and Winter 2022. For Stanford in Washington, internships and many learning opportunities will not be available to unvaccinated students.  Approval for vaccine exemption for on-campus enrollment does not automatically extend to off-campus programs. For more information about program specific withdrawal deadlines please see the Stanford in Washington Handbook and Contract.

Our COVID 19 Health Protocols can be found in the document linked here:
