The Office of the Provost, Faculty Staff Housing (FSH) continues to offer on- and off-campus ground-leased homes for
purchase via lottery in the 2018-19 academic year. In addition to the University Terrace offering, the University
continues to acquire additional residential properties to increase the University’s inventory of housing. FSH
anticipates that the new lottery homes will continue to be a mixture of condominium and single-family residences, both
new construction and recently refurbished. Additionally, we anticipate that the lottery homes will continue to vary
in floor plan size and location within the surrounding communities of Stanford, Palo Alto, Los Altos, and Menlo Park.
The sales will be conducted by random-number drawing (lottery). All faculty
purchase a home must complete and submit an Interest List Application to participate in each lottery. Faculty couples
with dual eligibility may apply individually. All participants will be notified after the Interest List Application
has been submitted and will receive a unique identifier. Submission of an Interest List Application is neither a
guarantee of eligibility nor qualification to purchase. No priority will be given based on the timing of the submission.
FSH will verify all submissions and eligible participants will be notified when the application has been accepted.
Applicants may withdraw from consideration prior to the lottery.
To withdraw from consideration, contact FSH by email to
No withdrawal requests will be accepted by telephone. (updated 10/1/2018)

Lottery are no longer eligible to participate in another FSH Housing Lottery. This does not apply to those who have a
