Welcome to Stanford Hospitality & Auxiliaries

Michael Gratz

To students, faculty, and staff,

During this extraordinary time, our primary focus is on the health and well-being of our students, the dedicated staff at Residential & Dining Enterprises (R&DE) Stanford Hospitality & Auxiliaries and the greater university community.

We continue to adhere to state, county and university requirements and I would like to update you on the measures R&DE is taking to maintain essential services to Stanford students while also following the CDC-recommended guidelines.

For some time, we have proactively implemented enhanced cleaning, disinfecting and safety procedures and additional protocols in all of our retail cafés, catering spaces, concessions venues and at The Stanford Guest House. The University continues to collaborate with external and internal subject matter experts on ensuring that all possible precautions are being taken to manage the spread of COVID-19. In addition, our staff receive daily reminders and training about the steps they must take as well.

While we continue to work to provide high quality food and service the university community has come to expect, we do so with adjustments to our schedule and locations that acknowledge the reduced campus population while supporting social distancing protocols. We invite Stanford students, faculty and staff to purchase meals from the Axe & Palm, Coffee Bar @ the Clark Center and EVGR Pub & Beer Garden as well as groceries, ready-to-eat meals and sundries from the Market at Munger and EVGR Marketplace.

In addition, the following modifications have been made:

We recognize the important role Stanford Hospitality & Auxiliaries plays within our campus community and we appreciate your support as we navigate this challenging time for all. You can find the latest updates regarding Stanford’s response to the COVID-19 outbreak at healthalerts.stanford.edu. Lastly, I encourage you to routinely visit R&DE’s COVID-19 response page for the most up-to-date information regarding changes to our retail locations, hours of operations and other pertinent details.

Thank you. Stay well and be safe.
