Moving to the Farm

Stanford students move to the farm.
This page provides guidance on arriving and parking on campus on Move-In Day. The 2019 NSO Parking Pass and Driving Routes will be available by September 1.
Based on the expert advice of the first-year and transfer students who have come before you, we have compiled a list of what you will likely need or want in your dorm room.
If you are planning to ship items as you move to campus, follow these instructions and please keep in mind that you can only receive packages after you have moved in. Do not send your belongings in advance of your arrival, as packages that arrive before you do will be returned to the sender.
View a list of on- and off-campus banks, services, and shops as well as student discounts to help you get settled into your new home at Stanford.
