Important Notes

[1] This tour is led by student staff of the Stanford Visitor Center, not by the Department of Athletics, Physical Education, and Recreation (DAPER), and is in no way meant to serve as a tour for athletic recruits. Students wishing to find out more about playing for Stanford teams should visit

[2] While the tour path does wind through many of Stanford’s athletic facilities, it does not provide entry into Stanford Stadium, Maples Pavilion, or departmental offices. It does, however, provide close-up views of the majority of our complexes, playing fields, and recreational facilities.
