Getting Started

As a graduate student, you are part of a broader graduate student community that accounts for more than half of the University’s student body and much of our campus life. We hope you find Stanford intellectually and personally enriching, and that you will take advantage of all the University has to offer by attending seminars, taking courses from other departments, and interacting with people from a range of disciplines and backgrounds.

This page provides an introductory list of essential tasks, orientations and training, and other resources to help you adjust to your new home at Stanford.
