Get started

Space administrators wanting to use Cardinal Flex for the shared workspaces they manage should submit a Help request.

Users wanting to view spaces for which they are authorized to use and to reserve a space should visit the Cardinal Flex reservation site or install the mobile application (iPhone | Android). Cardinal Flex uses your SUNet ID and password (Stanford Single Sign On) and automatically creates an account for you the first time you connect via a browser. (NOTE: You must connect via a browser — not the mobile app — the first time to have your account created.)

Get help

Stanford partners with Condeco and uses its Personal Space tool to provide Cardinal Flex. Following are some short guides from Condeco to help you get started.
