The Munger Graduate Residence

Stanford University added much needed graduate student housing this year with completion of the first phase of construction of this high-end apartment complex, the Munger Graduate Residence. Made possible with a generous gift from Charles and Nancy Munger (BA ´45), the Residence will be a model for interdisciplinary living and learning for law and graduate students from across Stanford University.

“Interdisciplinary education can be greatly enhanced by offering students opportunities for increased social interaction. The Munger Graduate Residence, by virtue of its location near the law school and its community-promoting design, will contribute enormously to achieving this end.” Larry Kramer, Richard E. Lang Professor of Law and Dean
