Welcome to R&DE Stanford Dining!

Residential and Dining Enterprises (R&DE) Stanford Dining welcomes you to our award-winning dining program comprised of 11 dining halls, 3 late night operations, summer conference dining, and supported by an exceptional team of chefs, managers and staff. We provide delicious and nutritious cuisine, guided by our sustainable purchasing guidelines, to meet the diverse dietary needs of our Stanford community, including vegan, vegetarian, halal, kosher, gluten-free and food allergy accommodations. We encourage you to discuss your individual needs with our team, as they are here to help make it easy to eat well at Stanford.

Cheer on Stanford Football
Throughout the football season, join us at the Student Meal Zone at Stanford Stadium to purchase a meal with a meal card swipe. Meal plan dollars can also be used at select Stanford Hospitality & Auxiliaries restaurants conveniently located throughout campus, while Cardinal Dollars can be used at all R&DE locations.

Get Involved
R&DE Stanford Dining encourages you to get involved in your dining program. In the R&DE Teaching Kitchen @Stanford, we’re teaching students firsthand to be confident in the kitchen and informed consumers. Our innovative research and development kitchen, the Stanford Flavor Lab, hosts tastings and educational opportunities to learn more about the food in our dining halls. Also, look out for our cultural dinner celebrations, like Día de Los Muertos, Lunar New Year, etc., in different dining halls throughout the year.
