Map of Locations


Information about transportation to Stanford can be found at http://transportation.stanford.edu. Some important and helpful transportation links include:

  • CalTrain - local commuter rail between San Francisco and San Jose.
  • Marguerite Shuttle - Stanford's free public shuttle service, which travels around campus and connects to nearby transit, shopping, dining, and entertainment.


Parking on campus can be something of an adventure.  But if you arrive by or before 8:30am it is much easier.  For both locations, if you are driving we strongly recommend parking in Parking Structure 6, also known as the Wilbur Field Underground Parking Garage.  Its a very short walk to Paul Brest Hall. Be sure to park in visitor parking spaces, and pay for a full day at the parking permit machines.  You can also use the Parkmobile app to pay for your space.
