Getting to MSOB

The Medical School Office Building (MSOB) is located on the corner of Campus Drive West and Welch Road, between Panama Street and Welch Road. MSOB is a three story white building with redwood window framing and stone fountain outside the back entrance, indicated with the red arrow in the figure below. The street address is 1265 Welch Road, Stanford, CA 94305. The exact latitude/longitude is 37.431734, -122.179476.

There are two options for parking. Note the two orange arrows in the figure below.

The first option is the parking lot in front of our building, which has an entrance on Welch Road. This lot has a few parking slots with coin metered parking.

A second option for parking is in the large parking lot across the street on Welch Road. Entrance to the lot is from Stock Farm Road or Oak Road, but you have to drive within the lot towards the corner of Welch Road and Campus Drive. There are many spots available here, and payment is through cash, coins, or credit card using an automated permit dispenser.

By Taxi Cab from San Francisco International Airport

Taxi cabs from San Francisco Airport to the Stanford campus can be very expensive, around $100 each way.
