Class of 2026 & Transfers
Welcome! We are excited to welcome you to our Stanford family and help you prepare for your first year on The Farm.
If you have not done so yet, please create your Stanford University Network ID (SUNet ID). Once Approaching Stanford begins, you will need to use your SUNet ID to check your Stanford email account and to complete your Approaching Stanford Requirements. All Approaching Stanford and official university communications will be sent to your Stanford email account.
Approaching Stanford is the process that guides all new undergraduates in the transition to life on The Farm. Throughout the summer, you'll be introduced to the Stanford community while completing your New Student Requirements (health forms, housing application, first-year course preferences, and more). The process culminates with New Student Orientation when you move to campus in September.
Move-In & New Student Orientation
We are excited to welcome you campus! Move-In and New Student Orientation will take place the week before the start of Autumn Quarter. State and county health conditions permitting, Move-In Day for new students will be Tuesday, September 20, 2022. NSO will be September 21-25, 2022. All new students are required to live on campus and participate in New Student Orientation. Schedule details will be published online later in the summer.

Stanford Indigenous Land Acknowledgment
Stanford sits on the ancestral land of the Muwekma Ohlone Tribe. This land was and continues to be of great importance to the Ohlone people. Consistent with our values of community and inclusion, we have a responsibility to acknowledge, honor, and make visible the University’s relationship to Native peoples.
