Those of you living in Escondido Village, I read that there's a major construction project coming... is your EV housing in jeopardy? EV seems like it would be the best option for my situation, but I'm worried that there won't be availability if they start demolishing most of the units. What's the word on campus about that?
EDIT: I think I found the answer I was looking for in a Stanford FAQ:

*Will there be sufficient family housing to meet demand after the demolition required for this project?
Yes. Families today live in one of 10 family courtyard residences in Escondido Village (Abrams A and B, Barnes A and B, Hulme A and B, Thoburn, Hoskins, McFarland and Jenkins). In addition, two other courtyards – Blackwelder and Escondido South –were originally built for families, but do not currently have families assigned.
These twelve courtyards combined represent 514 apartments. There are currently 260 families in Escondido Village. The new housing project will require the demolition of 184 apartments (Hoskins, McFarland, Jenkins and Blackwelder courtyards) leaving 330 apartments. As part of this plan, Escondido South will be improved this summer with two enclosed courtyards and enclosed sideyards. In the future, families could also be housed in a newly created Dudley Lane courtyard, for a total of 348 available family courtyard apartments.
This is 8% more than the highest number of families assigned in over a decade and nearly 35% more than assignments in the last eight years.
