Munger Graduate Residence

“If you build really good housing, it will be a huge advantage for Stanford. It will form a community that doesn’t yet exist in American education. The students will educate each other.” -Charles T. Munger

Made possible with a generous gift from Charles T. Munger, Vice Chairman of Berkshire Hathaway, and his wife Nancy Munger (BA ’45), the Munger Graduate Residence is a new concept in interdisciplinary living and learning at Stanford University.

The Best in Graduate Student Housing

A five-building housing complex, the Munger Residence was designed—with the direct input of students—specifically for Stanford Law and Stanford University graduate students. It is the very best in campus housing design.

  • 358 residential units for approximately 600 students.
  • The spacious, fully furnished studio, 1-, 2-, and 4-bedroom apartments offer fully equipped kitchens, contemporary furniture, spacious living areas, wireless Internet, and comfortable bedrooms.
  • Each bedroom has an ensuite bathroom.
  • Communal spaces are large, airy and designed to foster work and socializing in comfort.

Located at the heart of Stanford campus and the center of university life, the Munger Residence will also form a community of its own. The design of the complex emphasizes open common areas, and the architecture fosters a sense of community and cross-disciplinary discussion. Here students from Stanford Law School and Stanford University’s other top-ranked graduate schools and departments will come together to live, study and exchange ideas.

  • Each building has open lounges for residents to gather.
  • The complex has a café for dining and meeting with friends, a convenience/grocery store for easy shopping, and an open courtyard connecting the Munger Residence with Stanford Law School.
The project is breathtaking in its scope and significance: a home to graduate students from throughout the university that will seamlessly meld living and studying among its residents, promoting interaction between the different professions and disciplines.
