We work with the most talented vendors in the market and can assist with room design, florals, and culinary flare to bring your vision to life, whether you are after a simple and elegant lunch or a complex and creative conference. Culinary classics and contemporary dishes that focus on sustainable, local ingredients are reflected in our range of packages and menu options.

Reservations and Booking Guidelines

Cardinal Hall offers a variety of conference rooms, the largest of which can accommodate up to 160 guests, that can be reserved for Stanford University and Stanford Healthcare meetings and conferences.

The Process
Once you have completed the request form, one of our talented conference coordinators will review your request and respond to you with availability and relevant rental information. They will also send you a comprehensive preliminary event proposal, including requested catering, room set-up and A/V details. Please note that in order to guarantee the event date and space, a department PTA and signed event proposal is required.

Making Changes
All gatherings – from large, multi-faceted conferences to focused retreats or business meetings – can be personalized. We understand details change as your program evolves over time, and are happy to assist with changes to your scheduled event. However, all changes must be made a minimum of 7 days in advance of your event date. Contractual changes made within 6 days are subject to availability and additional fees.
