Bass Center Overview

In 1988, Stanford University purchased a property at the intersection of Connecticut Avenue and Woodley Road in Northwest Washington. With funds generously provided by Anne T. (MLA ’07) and Robert M. Bass (MBA ’74), the venue would become Stanford in Washington’s home.

The Anne T. and Robert M. Bass Center houses students and has several program spaces, as well as apartments for Stanford faculty in residence, including:

The Bing Tutorial Room 

is an intimate seminar room for small classes and meetings.  

The Robin and Donald Kennedy Student Lounge 

has been enjoyed by students for informal gatherings and watching television since the opening of the center.

The Charles M. Pigott, ’51 Seminar Room 

is a large seminar room for classes and meetings. 

The Rockefeller Room 

is used for formal gatherings, speakers, concerts, and receptions. 

The Ann Pigott Wyckoff, ’48 Student Dining Room 

is where students enjoy breakfast and dinner each day. 

The Weintz Room 

is a gym with treadmills, a bicycle, an elliptical machine, and free weights.
