Neighborhoods

Neighborhoods were designed to be your home at Stanford, and now is the time to truly make it yours. Explore more information about the neighborhoods, connect with local staff, find out what events are happening and explore the types of houses found within each one. 

Social Life Accelerator Task Force

Stanford’s long been known for its fun, irreverent, whimsical social scene. Yet it just hasn’t felt as vibrant as it could be. Now, a group of alumni, students, staff and families are getting together to accelerate undergrad social life on The Farm.

Embracing Change

The Flourish, November 2022

This month, we share some tools and resources to keep you grounded for whatever comes your way. Read on to learn more about how you can embrace these changes, how to incorporate more gratitude into your life, and ways to cope with those gloomy thoughts. We also highlight student tips for managing test anxiety, as we know midterm season is among us. 

5-SURE Safe Rides

5-SURE is for all Stanford students, faculty and staff. Drivers are trained to handle a variety of situations. The service assists thousands of students per quarter by providing transportation to and from an array of campus locations that range from parties and other campus activities to dormitories and libraries. 

Resources for Our Communities

Student Affairs offers our communities support and we are continually seeking ways in which we can provide resources to those who may need it, whether on or off campus. Take time to care for yourself and connect with friends, family, and other support. You do not have to experience anything on your personal journey on your own.

COVID-19 Guidance for Students

We want to assure you that we are taking steps to protect everyone’s health and safety. We invite you to join us in minimizing the prevalence and reducing the spread of COVID-19 on our campus.
