On behalf of the R&DE Team,

Welcome to Stanford!



Dear Students, 

This is always an exciting time of year, as the entire Residential & Dining Enterprises (R&DE) team prepares to welcome new and returning students to campus following the break.  

This year, although circumstances have changed due to COVID-19, we want to ensure each of you knows, whether you will be living on campus or joining us remotely, you are welcome and valued. In R&DE, we believe students come first. You are the reason we are here! With this in mind, we have adapted our operations to continue serving you in a way that is safe for you, for our dedicated staff and others in our community. For example, we have changed our dining and café service, in alignment with county mandates and have implemented enhanced cleaning protocols in dining, housing and across R&DE. On our website, you can learn more about how we can work together to keep everyone safe.  

Our nutritionists are available (whether you live on campus or not) to assist students who have food allergies, religious dietary requirements and other special diets and those who have questions about nutrition. For assistance with healthy eating, visit our Eat Well @ Stanford page. It includes a link to schedule a consultation.  

EVGR features a Marketplace, where students can purchase pre-packaged meals and snacks. You can also use your Stanford Dining meal plan dollars for meals in the Marketplace and EVGR Dining. Cardinal Dollars are accepted at the EVGR Marketplace, the Munger Market and the Axe and Palm. You can purchase from Munger Market and the Axe and Palm using the Food ToGo pre-order app. Munger Market also offers contact-free delivery. As the public health situation is evolving, please check out website for Dining locations and hours and cafe and market locations and hours.

The R&DE Student Housing Service Centers are your source for information and assistance in situations such as lock outs. The R&DE CARE (Community Access Response Enterprise) team is also available for after-hours check ins and lockouts. 

This  academic year continues to be one of change and adaptation. We want you to know, whatever the coming months may bring, R&DE is here to support you. Stay well. We wish you a successful quarter! 


Warm regards,
