Stanford Medicine ID Badge

All Biosciences students are required to carry a Stanford Medicine ID while at the School of Medicine Campus, Stanford Hospital & Clinics and Lucille Packard Children’s Hospital. New MS & PhD students will receive a badge as part of the orientation process – please see your orientation emails for further instructions.

Biosciences students’ Stanford Hospital badge is also used to access School of Medicine buildings including the Li Ka Shing Center (LKSC). This badge is for your own use and is not to be loaned or passed to anyone at any time. In order to receive your badge and the access it grants you, you are required to fill out a fitness center waiver form and a space usage agreement.

The Office of Graduate Education manages general student badge access including student only access to the fourth floor of LKSC. For badge access to other buildings and labs at the School of Medicine, inquire with your department or building manager or email so that you can be connected with the authorized access approver.
