Welcome to Residential Education's online home regarding student support for Stanford University's undergraduate population. Here you'll be able to find your local residence deans, access resources and review specific policy. 

For Undergraduate Crisis Support

If you are in a crisis and need immediate assistance, a Dean On Call (DOC) is accessible 24/7 via phone call at 650-504-8022. The DOC is responsible for providing immediate support, resources, and referrals to undergraduate students, staff, and faculty during a crisis and in emergency situations.  The DOC is both supportive and administrative to assist with the following: providing on-site response in a time of crisis, connecting with medical care or student counseling, reporting a crime, receiving/addressing concerns about a student, and connecting students to resources to meet their needs.

For Immediate Student, Staff, and/or Faculty Non-Urgent Guidance and Support

 Due to the current implementations that have taken place as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, our staff cannot be available for in person meetings or walk ins.  We are however committed to continue being in contact with our students, staff, and faculty by providing various options to connect.  We have established virtual drop-in hours which are available Tuesdays, 7:00-9:00pm. In order to access the link for virtual drop-in hours, please use your Stanford credentials. If you are a student, please know that your Residence Dean will continue to be available to support you.  You can contact the assigned Residence Dean for your area or if you live off campus you can connect with the Residence Dean assigned to your previous place of residence.  We also invite faculty and staff to engage and consult with us as needed in support of our entire Stanford community.
