As staff occupy the first two buildings, we answer more of your questions about how the services and programs you rely on will continue to operate across the campuses.
The first staff of the new Stanford Redwood City campus are now in Cardinal Hall, and University Hall is continuing to welcome departments as they transition through mid-May. We reported in March about the services provided by those groups in University Hall, and any impacts to the university community. We also provided a preview of the new campus in the Welcome to Stanford Redwood City video. And Parking & Transportation recently provided tips for travel between the two campuses.
Now, we take a look at the groups from the School of Medicine who are moving into Discovery Hall from late May through late June.
For the full list of School of Medicine units moving to SRWC, visit the Departments page.
