Welcome to the School of Medicine in Stanford Redwood City

Stanford Redwood City
is the first major expansion of the university outside Palo Alto and Santa Clara County. The approximately 2,700 Stanford University Staff based at the new campus include three of the nine university  VPs and staff from nine areas across the university. Almost 600 staff members from 30 School of Medicine departments moved to Discovery Hall in SRWC in May-June 2019.

Since Discovery Hall is a university building, all facilities requests are handled by the SRWC campus operations team. Submit work requests for Discovery Hall here or call 650.723.7792 (x7-SRWC) for immediate assistance.


Who’s Where in SRWC: Building Assignments

Discovery Hall

Discovery Hall is the School of Medicine building at Stanford Redwood City. All buildings on the new campus offer an open workspace environment, along with a variety of shared spaces on each floor: including small, medium, and large conference rooms; phone rooms; and huddle spaces. The move to SRWC will enable us to create new ways of working with our colleagues both at the new campus as well as those on the main campus.

Discovery Hall Departments

Discovery Hall is the new work home for staff members from a variety of departments, both Dean’s Units as well as clinical.


Meeting Rooms

There are 73 meeting rooms distributed throughout the building. Most departments have a small meeting room designated for departmental use only – these meeting rooms are reservable only by the staff of the department. For a searchable listing of Discovery Hall meeting rooms, including room number, room name, capacity, capacity, and tech capability, click here. The listing also indicates which rooms are have a designated department, along with the room admin.

Cardinal Print

The university has introduced a new print program, Cardinal Print, at SRWC. With Cardinal Print, you use your Stanford University ID or SUNet ID and password to securely print or scan a document, and you can manage your workflow at the printer or online. Printing equipment is also standardized and consolidated, which reduces the amount of resources needed to print and lowers the total cost of print services at Stanford. View the demo and visit the Cardinal Print page for more information.

This program also includes Cardinal Fax, which allows users to create, send, and receive faxes directly from their inbox.

Parking & Transportation at SRWC


Please see the Parking & Transportation Services site for information about parking at SRWC and transportation options to the new campus.

The shuttle schedule between the Caltrain station and SRWC includes the midday Marguerite shuttle between SRWC and downtown Redwood City. There’s a stop right outside Discovery Hall, on the corner of Broadway and Barron Avenue.
