The Graduate Life Office (GLO) is a division of the Office of the Vice Provost for Student Affairs and is guided by Our Most Important Work. We serve the entire graduate student population at Stanford and their families. GLO deans are a source of comprehensive, impartial guidance and information related to all aspects of your life as a graduate student.

Concerned About a Student?

Faculty, staff and friends are in a unique position to identify graduate students who might be having academic or personal problems.

COVID-19 Guidance for Students

As we continue to live with COVID-19 and the many ways in which it impacts student life, we've set-up this section to share relevant information with Stanford's communities.

The Farm is a very special place indeed with connections occurring every day across our communities. We want our students to flourish and to find their space. Find out about upcoming events hosted through CardinalEngage and Stanford Events to see how you can expand your experience. 

Resources for Our Communities

Student Affairs offers our communities support and we are continually seeking ways in which we can provide resources to those who may need it, whether on or off campus.
