PARKING & DIRECTIONSStanford is easily accessible throughout the San Francisco Bay area, including San Francisco, Berkeley, and San Jose. We encourage you to download and print both the Parking and Circulation Map and the Campus Map and bring them with you.
Stanford parking is free after 4:00 pm and on weekends, and after 6:00 pm at the Campus Oval (except where 24-hour-enforced signs are posted). No permits are required after those times. Most Continuing Studies courses are located in or near the Main Quad. Please be aware that parking can be difficult on campus. For information on where to park on campus, visit the Parking and Transportation website. We also offer some suggestions on our Building Locations and Suggested Parking page.
If you need special parking accommodations due to a disability, call or email the Diversity and Access office for assistance: 650-725-0326 or [email protected].
The Marguerite Shuttle
The Marguerite, Stanford's free public shuttle system, offers transportation to and from the Palo Alto Transit Center. The main shuttle lines traverse the campus Monday through Friday all year (except University holidays). All buses are wheelchair-accessible and have bicycle racks. Marguerite is free and open to the public - no ID required. Lines N and O offer evening service between the Palo Alto Transit Center and top of the Oval. For more information on the Marguerite shuttle including schedules and maps, visit the Parking and Transportation website.
