Resources and Directions

Getting to Stanford

Review directions to campus, along with information about public transit and ground transportation options. If you will be traveling by plane, shuttle service is available from all three nearby airports. For information about specific shuttle services, visit the airports’ websites (SFO, SJC, OAK) to review your options. Remember that you will have to get your luggage on and off the shuttle, so pack bags that you will be able to carry on your own. Make sure each piece of luggage is clearly labeled, inside and outside, with your full name and Stanford residence. You may even consider shipping some items directly to campus.

Searchable Campus Map

Download the Stanford Mobile app and use the "Map" feature to familiarize yourself with the Stanford campus. Look for your Housing Service Center (formerly called Housing Front Desk) and your residence on the searchable campus map or on this map of campus residences.
