Getting Here

Alternative Transportation

Stanford University offers a variety of programs that encourage and support the use of alternative transportation. Visitors can get to, from, and around campus easily by bicycle, shuttles, and Bay Area transit.

Marguerite is Stanford University’s free public shuttle service, which connects to nearby transit, shopping, dining, and entertainment venues. The Line X and Line Y shuttles pick up and drop off passengers near the southbound train platform, and stop at Knight Management Center, as illustrated on the system map.


Parking is available in the underground structure at the Knight Management Center. Permits are required and enforced Monday through Friday from 6am to 4pm.

Visitor Permits

One-day visitor permits allow for parking in any metered space and are available for purchase for $35.60 each at a pay-for-parking kiosk or $35.68 from ParkMobile.

Valid Physical Daily Permits

If you have a physical daily “scratcher” permit you purchased previously, these permits remain valid through their expiration dates. Be sure to scratch off the correct date and hang your permit facing outward from your rear-view mirror.

You may purchase a daily permit one of two ways:

Pay-For-Parking Kiosk: You can pay for parking using the pay-by-license-plate kiosks located in the parking structure (and in lots and garages throughout campus). Simply enter your vehicle license plate number and pay with your credit card (Visa, MasterCard, or Discover). You do not need to display your receipt in your vehicle. The receipt is not valid in any other location. You have the option to purchase parking by the hour through the pay-for-parking kiosk.

P&TS Online Ordering Portal: Regardless of what time you purchase the permit, the daily permit will be charged the full-day parking rate. Stanford employees and students may use single sign-on to access the portal. All others must create a visitor account to access the portal.


Use the Parkmobile app or website to pay using a credit card (Visa, MasterCard, or Discover) at pay-by-license plate parking locations at the Knight Management Center parking structure. In addition to the visitor parking fee, Parkmobile charges 35 cents for each transaction.

Other nearby parking locations include:

  • Parking lot at Bonair Siding Road and Campus Drive — pay-by-license-plate kiosk, two-minute walk
  • On-street parking at Memorial Way and Galvez Street — pay-by-license-plate kiosk, five-minute walk
  • Visitor Center parking lot at 295 Galvez Street — pay-by-license-plate kiosk, ten-minute walk
  • The underground parking structure at Campus Drive East and Wilbur Way — pay-by-license-plate kiosk, ten-minute walk
Taxi and Rideshare Drop-Off and Pick-Up

Jane Stanford Way is closed to traffic since the street in front of the Knight Management Center is now a bicycle and pedestrian mall. Therefore, taxis and rideshare drivers should use the passenger turnaround, located in front of the Schwab Residential Center, for drop-off and pick-up. This turnaround is accessible on Jane Stanford Way via Campus Drive East. Use 680 Jane Stanford Way, Stanford, CA as the address to get directions to the turnaround.

Pets, Service & Support Animals

Stanford has a “no pet policy” for office, academic, and student residence spaces, with the exception of service and approved support animals. General guidelines for service and approved support animals include the following:

  • Dogs must be kept on leash at all times (unless performing a task) in all interior common area spaces as well as exterior spaces.
  • In an effort to prevent damage to lawns, tan bark areas should be used as designated relief areas. Be sure you pick up after your animal.
  • Do not leave pet food out in interior or exterior spaces since it may attract pests.
  • Toys, bedding, etc., may not be left out in common areas.
  • If your service or approved support animal causes damage to the building, you may be charged a repair and/or cleaning fee.
  • Approved support animals are allowed in Stanford student housing; however, support animals are generally restricted in other areas. See FAQs: Service and Support Animals at Stanford for further information.

The Diversity and Access Office provides additional guidance to students, staff, faculty and members of the public with service and support animals at Stanford. If you require an accommodation for a service or support animal at Stanford GSB, students are requested to advise their Student Program Office, staff advise Stanford GSB Human Resources, and faculty advise Stanford GSB Academic Administration.

Smoke-Free Environment

The Knight Management Center, GSB Residences buildings, and surrounding areas are smoke-free environments. “Smoke-free” refers to an environment that is free of smoke from, among other things, tobacco products and/or vapors from electronic smoking devices. Smoking is prohibited at all university-sponsored indoor and outdoor events.

There are designated smoking areas which are noted on the map linked above.
