For your convenience, we’ve put together a list of some of the most common questions we receive from our residents. If you'd like any other information, please contact the Management Office anytime -- we're always happy to answer questions.


What if I resign or retire?

Each household will be re-certified at the conclusion of their lease.  Please note, upon retirement or resignation a household will no longer qualify for the Stanford Affiliate Rate.  If available, the household will be offered a non-Stanford Affiliate lease.

What about rent increases?

Under the terms of a lease, rents are guaranteed for the duration of the lease term.

As long as the eligible resident maintains their Stanford Affiliate status, an offer to renew their lease will be made, based on availability.  At that time the rent may be increased.

The only rent increases that are restricted are those for the BMR (Below Market Rate) homes which are a function of the agreement between Stanford University and the City of Palo Alto.

Parking & Guests

How many parking spaces do we get?

Each home is assigned one (1) carport.

Additional vehicles, which must have a Welch Road Parking Permit, have access to unreserved parking spaces numbered 211 or higher, these spaces are available on a first-come-first-served basis.
