The Stanford Visitor Center and most campus facilities and departments will be closed from December 20, 2014 through January 4, 2015 in accordance with annual Stanford University practice.

Prospective Students: Planning a Spring Visit?

We strongly encourage prospective students planning a visit to do so either before March 14 or after April 7 in order to maximize the the value of the visit. These are our busiest weeks of the year, and they coincide with Stanford's final exams and our own Spring Break — large crowds are thus paired with limited offerings and greatly reduced tour guide staffing. To truly get a sense of what Stanford is like, come during an academic quarter in order to sit in on classes, enjoy smaller tour groups, and take part in special interest tours and programs. For more information, please contact us at (650) 723-2560 during business hours.
