The Dean of Students Office serves as the compass for undergraduate and graduate students' lived experiences, guiding them toward finding their own sense of purpose and belonging. Our mission is to foster an accessible and meaningful educational environment for students by providing individualized student support, responding to impactful incidents, and cultivating the conditions for learning, development, and success in a residential community.
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.
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.
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.
Stanford Against Hate
Through the COVID-19 pandemic, more attention and awareness has grown around long standing issues of oppression and injustice.
