On Campus Housing
Stanford has limited on campus housing available in undergraduate dorms. There are requirements one must meet to be eligible for this type of housing. Stanford Housing has agreed that registration in SWWS 2001 will make meet the eligibility requirement. Registration will be verified. The housing is in single rooms (or in suites of three to five single rooms with a common room). The cost is approximately $45 per night - half the cost of an inexpensive motel in the area.
People seeking on campus housing should send a note to firstname.lastname@example.org with a request for information and mention the workshop SWWS 2001) and the dates requested in the note. The housing office will respond by sending an on-line application form. The housing office has their own financial procedures (a deposit may be required) but they have agreed to honor requests from SWWS participants to the extent housing remains available. Housing on campus will simplify transportation because Stanford has a free shuttle (the Marguerite Shuttle) that goes all over the campus and to the commercial areas of Palo Alto and Menlo Park.
The pleary session will be in the TCSEQ building. 370 Serra Mall, Stanford University, Stanford, CA, 94305. Mapquest can be used to determine the distance between the hotels and the TCSEQ building.
