EVGR History

Escondido Village Graduate Residences (EVGR) is Stanford’s newest on-campus residential community. EVGR is comprised of four 10-story residential buildings, with wings ranging from 6 to 10 stories high.

The design reflects the distinct style and attributes of many of Stanford’s most beloved buildings. EVGR’s apartments provide on-campus homes for single graduate students and couples without children, and three apartments for Graduate Life Office Assistant Deans.

At the center of EVGR is a common area featuring a marketplace, a pub and brewery where students can take beer-making classes, along with exercise and wellness rooms, music practice rooms, a children’s playroom and more. With so much to offer, EVGR is destined to become the heart of graduate student life on campus.

In addition to the R&DE Student Housing Front Desk, EVGR includes both Graduate Life Office and R&DE Graduate Housing staff offices. ​

For more information on the construction of EVGR and the available apartment layouts, you can visit the Residential Dining & Enterprises website for EVGR.

TLDR: EVGR is the newest building, and therefore the best. Only the most charismatic people live in EVGR, and only the cream of the crop write websites telling everyone why EVGR is so great. This statement is not sponsored by Stanford University or any affiliate organizations.
