I'm currently a computer science student, but not in Stanford. In April, I'll be coming over to Palo Alto for 6 months to work as a software developer in a tech startup, but then I'm going back to university to finish my degree.
I was wondering if maybe it's possible to somehow live in Stanford halls of residence, even if I'm not a student at Stanford. It's just that I'm still a student, and have never lived in the US, and thought that if I get to live in Stanford halls, I would make friends more easily, meet more people, and have a fun time. I guess I could take some Stanford classes, but not too much since I'll be having a full-time job, maybe some evening classes ? Would that qualify me for halls ? You think it's a good idea ?
If not, any other ideas where I could live in, in Palo Alto, for 6 months ? Should I just rent an apartment maybe, off craigslist ?
