A Great Way to Start & End Your Symposium Day – Take Transit!

Avoid the traffic and take transit right to the conference center steps! Take Caltrain from San Francisco and points north, or from Gilroy and points south, to the Palo Alto Caltrain station. Take the free Stanford University “X Line” (red) Marguerite Shuttle to a stop directly across the street from the Li Ka Shing Center (X Limited) or at the adjacent School of Medicine (X Line or X Express).

Driving Directions & Parking

stanford map 2016
Please note that if you have attended past EHSSENTIALS events at Stanford, this year we have needed to alter our normal parking location/process due to construction.

  1. Park in the main hospital parking garage – underground Parking Structure 4 – located near the Sand Hill Road campus entrance (see map).
  2. There is no event parking attendant; use the standard parking machines to obtain your ticket and bring your ticket with you; we are making arrangements for parking fee reimbursement and will advise you at Symposium check-in
  3. The walk to the Li Ka Shing conference center is shorter than past years (see map), however, additional time may be required to enter the garage at this busy morning hour; please plan to arrive at least 30-45 min prior to the event start to allow for parking, a short walk and check in.
