Students are never an interruption in our day. They are the reason we are here.

Residential & Dining Enterprises is dedicated to providing the highest quality service to our Stanford University family of students, faculty, staff and other community members. All our divisions – Stanford Dining, Student Housing, Stanford Hospitality & Auxiliaries as well as Stanford Conferences – share the same vision and culture of excellence in everything we do. Serving the well-being of students is the reason we are here, and the central purpose in our support of the academic mission of the university. As the second largest university auxiliary, we generate revenue primarily through room and board rates, conference fees, as well as cafés, catering and concessions, whose revenues support student programming with the commitment to keep student expenses as low as possible.
