The symposium will be hosted in rooms 205 and 002 at the Lane History Corner, located in Building 200 at Stanford University. 

Getting to the venue

Building 200 is located at the northeast corner of the outer Main Quad. From the Oval, use the ramped path to the right of the steps to reach the arcade level. Turn left at the arcade and proceed down to the end of the Outer Quad arcade. Building 200 is on the right side just past Building 160. 

Getting to Stanford by Caltrain

The local transit hub for bus and train services at Stanford is the Palo Alto Caltrain Station, located near the main entrance to campus near the intersections of Palm Drive, University Avenue, and El Camino Real. The Stanford Marguerite Shuttle, the University’s free shuttle bus, operates several routes. Most provide service from the Caltrain Station to multiple campus locations.

If you are traveling from San Francisco or San Jose, Caltrain is your most convenient option. A one-way trip from San Francisco takes approximately one hour and costs about $7.25; a one-way trip from San Jose takes approximately 40 minutes and costs about $5.25.

Once you arrive at the station, there is a free shuttle called the Marguerite. Take the Y (to stop "Galvez st. at Serra Mall") or P (to stop "Campus Oval"). The venue is a short walk from either of these stops. 

Getting to Stanford by Car

These are directions to the Roth Way parking garage. To get to the venue from the garage, walk east on Roth Way until you hit Palm Drive. Turn right on Palm Drive and walk down the oval. Cross Serra Mall and Lane History Corner is located on the left corner of the buildings you first encounter (in front of the quad).

From Highway 101 North & South
Exit onto Embarcadero Road and travel west, following the signs directing you to Stanford University. About three miles after you exit the freeway, Embarcadero Road becomes Galvez Street as you cross El Camino Real. Turn right onto Campus Drive and then make a left on Roth Way. The parking garage will be in your left. 

From Highway 280 North & South
Exit onto Sand Hill Road and follow the signs for Stanford University. Heading east, drive approximately 3 miles to the Stanford Shopping Center. Turn right onto Arboretum Road (Nordstrom is on your right). Then turn right onto Palm Drive, and make another right on Roth Way. The parking garage will be on your right. 

Parking on the weekends is free in most parking lots around Stanford's campus. See Stanford's parking map here.
