We recommend taking public transportation or using a ride-sharing service like Uber or Lyft to Stanford University if possible, as parking can be expensive and somewhat inconvenient. Below are instructions for different ways to get to campus from the designated hotels, as well as parking instructions if you choose to drive.

Visitor parking is available near the LKSC. The closest parking lots to the LKSC are the LKSC lot (Zone 7215), the Stock Farm lot (Zone 7217) and the Via Ortega Garage (Zone 7202). We recommend parking at the Stock Farm lot, as that has the most parking spaces. View map
