Residence Hall

Students will be housed at Roble Hall on the Stanford Campus.

Roble Hall is one of Stanford’s oldest and most historic residences. Constructed in 1917, it is the largest four-class dorm on campus, holding roughly 310 students, about half of whom are freshmen. Originally an all-female residence hall, Roble was designed by the notable architect George Kelham, who also designed the San Francisco Public Library. Roble is the oldest continuously used dormitory at Stanford. It takes its name from the Spanish word for the valley oak trees that dot the Stanford campus. In its front yard is a garden of statues moved here from New Guinea; in its backyard is “Lake” Lagunita and a great view of “the Dish”
