Athletic facilities and the Vaden Health Center, including a range of confidential counseling and psychological advisory services, have all been made easily accessible to enhance students’ health and wellbeing throughout their summer on campus.
Stanford health and athletics facilities are varied and state-of-the-art. Work out on machines in either of the two gyms on campus. Try a yoga or TaeKwonDo class in the large, well-equipped studio. Challenge yourself on the climbing wall or enjoy free access to our swimming pools; tennis, handball, and squash courts; basketball and sand volleyball courts; our golf course; and the fields and equipment that Stanford devotes to track and field, softball, soccer, and field hockey.
Stanford’s location also gives students access to hiking, bicycling, and running.
