How to Get the Most Out of Your Stanford Mobile App

Monday, March 15, 2021

The Stanford Mobile app was designed with you in mind. That’s why we’re committed to constantly evolving our features and curating a unique experience for each student, employee, and visitor who uses it.

Check out some of our favorite features to help you make the most of your Stanford mobile experience.

Stay connected

It’s hard to keep track of everything happening across the Farm. That’s why we’re making it easy for you to explore all of your options in a newly designed Events section.

All of your favorite Stanford happenings are now conveniently located directly in the app with improved exploring capabilities and native device integrations.

Over 30 different categories let you narrow down your options and select only the classes, lectures, performances, and other events that call your name. Click on an event to see its description, location, host contact information, and more. 

Use the “Add to Calendar” feature to never miss your favorite events again. Simply click the link to automatically add an invitation with full event details to your calendar — keeping you organized, connected, and informed. 

Ditch badge habits

Ever make it all the way up to the building only to realize you don’t have your Stanford ID card to badge in with? With the new Mobile ID feature, you’ll never have to worry about forgetting your card again. 

From the app, navigate to the Me tab to access to your virtual ID card — fully equipped with your photo, University ID number, and unique barcode.

Paired with your Health Check assessment, your new Mobile ID is your virtual ticket onto Stanford campuses.

Focus on you

The past year has brought about some unexpected changes and, more than likely, some new stressors. That’s why we’re prioritizing the increasingly important need for physical, mental, and emotional health. 

With our new Well-Being and Flourishing screen, you’ll find resources to keep you on track with your health and fitness goals. Take a look at daily well-being tips from Vaden Health Services, browse upcoming health-related events and a wealth of resources, including:
