About Stanford Mobile

Stanford Mobile is the official mobile app of Stanford University, where Stanford students, staff, faculty, alumni, parents, and friends connect to essential information on The Farm. The app allows you to explore campus dining options, upcoming events, featured news stories, campus and shuttle maps, and more at your fingertips. 

Stanford community members with a SUNet ID can login and access the Stanford Health Check and Mobile ID features. Health Check gives you quick and convenient access to the self-reporting tool. Mobile ID displays the information that you find on your physical Stanford ID card: your name, photo, affiliation, University ID, and barcode number. 

Expanded Mobile ID functionality, which includes door access to Stanford buildings, is currently part of a University IT pilot program.

The Stanford Mobile app is maintained by University IT

Stanford Health Check

In support of the safe, gradual return to our campuses, you can use the Stanford Mobile app to easily access the Stanford Health Check tool. 

With the mobile Health Check feature, a tap of your finger lets you:

  • Conveniently access Health Check to report your health status 
  • Quickly display your Onsite Access Badge to confirm that you are cleared to be on campus
  • Enable weekly notifications reminding you to report your health status before arriving onsite at a Stanford location

How do I install Stanford Mobile?
Open this page on your iOS or Android mobile device. Click the appropriate install link and you will be directed to the iOS App Store or Google Play Store page to install the app. You will need to log into your store account.
I already have the Stanford Mobile app. Why do I need to download the app again?
We've rebuilt Stanford Mobile for iOS and Android to make room for new robust features and services. To access these new features, you'll need to download the new Stanford Mobile from the App Store or Google Play. We recommend that you delete the old Stanford Mobile app because everything you need will be available on the new one.
Stanford Mobile asks me to allow push notifications. What is this used for?
We will occasionally send messages to users of Stanford Mobile about updates or new features. We will also send AlertSU emergency messages to users via push notification in the event of a campus emergency. The Stanford Health Check feature will push weekly notifications reminding you to report your health status before arriving onsite at a Stanford location.
Does Stanford Mobile collect any personal information from my device?
The Stanford Mobile app complies with Stanford University's Privacy Policy. It does not gather any personal information which is not directly related to functionality within the app. Review the Stanford Mobile app Privacy Policy.
