Take the Embarcadero Road exit west - toward Stanford. At El Camino Real, Embarcadero turns into Galvez Street as it enters the Stanford campus. Stay in the left lane and continue toward the center of campus. The Galvez Parking Lot will be on the right side, before Campus Drive, and the Alumni Center is on the right side of Galvez Street, just after you cross over Campus Drive.

From Highway 280 North & South

Exit Sand Hill Road east toward Stanford. Continue east, turning right at the traffic light on Santa Cruz Avenue. Make an immediate left onto Junipero Serra Boulevard. Turn left at the second traffic light and onto Campus Drive East. Continue around Campus Drive East until you reach Galvez Street. Take a right turn to the Galvez Parking Lot entrance (on your left), or a left turn to reach the Alumni Center (on your right).

From El Camino Real

Exit El Camino Real at University Avenue. Turn toward the hills (away from the center of Palo Alto). As you enter Stanford, University Avenue becomes Palm Drive. Go straight through one traffic light, and turn left onto Campus Drive at the first stop sign. The Galvez Parking Lot will be on your left.
