Stanford University is proud to play an active role in the life of our community, providing education, world-class research, the arts and economic opportunity.
Now, working closely with local residents and county government, Stanford is seeking an updated General Use Permit that will guide how Stanford uses its land and addresses housing, traffic and environmental concerns.
Facilities to support research and learning
Adding housing on campus
Compact development on the core campus
Commitment to community
Contributing positively to our region's quality of life
"As Stanford considers the facilities that will be needed in the coming years for our teaching, research, and health care missions, we intend to work closely with the community, being sensitive to the concerns of our neighbors and committed to contributing positively to our region's quality of life."
~ Marc Tessier-Lavigne, President, Stanford University
Accommodating unforeseen opportunities
Like the current General Use Permit, the proposed permit will allow Stanford to accommodate unexpected, emerging opportunities allowing the university to produce some of its most exciting innovations.
