Welcome to Stanford!

Resting on an unincorporated area of Santa Clara County, Stanford is home to the reputable Stanford University in the heart of Silicon Valley. With just over 13,000 residents, this neighborhood consists of on-campus housing for graduate students as well as residents belonging to faculty, staff members, and their families.

Stanford faculty and staff may own their homes but they are located on land leased from the university. Qualified personnel may take advantage of the many housing benefits such as the Housing Allowance Program (HAP), Mortgage Assistance Program (MAP), and the Deferred Interest Program (DIP). Each has specific rules and qualifications to determine the ability to purchase as well as participating in the programs offered.
