Scheduled Visitors

If you have an upcoming rotation with us, here are some useful resourses! 



We do not provide housing for visitors. Find some useful housing resources here. You may also check rental websites such as AirBnB for temporary housing. 




We recommend looking at Stanford's transportation site ahead of your visit.

You can purchase parking permits on their website, and learn about biking and rideshare options. You can also learn about Stanford's Marguerite bus system. 

Note: There are many roundabouts on campus. If you are unfamiliar with driving through them, you will want to look up how they work before you drive on campus.  


The Bay Area

Stanford University is located in Palo Alto, California. It is about 45 minutes south of San Francisco and is considered part of the Bay Area. Learn more about the surrounding Bay Area here.

There are many things to see, eat, and do - we hope you take some time to explore during your rotation!
