Domestic-Partner or Same-Sex Marriage Benefits

At Stanford University, a domestic partnership is defined as an established, long-term partnership with an exclusive mutual commitment in which the partners share the necessities of life and ongoing responsibility for their common welfare. Stanford’s nondiscrimination policy makes services that have historically been available to married students available on an equal basis to students with a same-sex or opposite-sex domestic partner.

Additional Information

Located just 30 miles outside San Francisco, Stanford law students take advantage of the vast networking opportunities and vibrant culture of the city, and enjoy a welcoming and close-knit LGBT community on campus.

The university as a whole offers a variety of important services to LGBT students, including counselors specialized in dealing with sexuality issues, an LGBT resource center, and health insurance coverage for sex-reassignment surgery.
