The Living Room
The Dwight Family Living Room features a large limestone fireplace, a Steinway grand piano, plush couches and plenty of space to relax, recharge and reconnect with fellow alums. Floor-to-ceiling windows bring the outside in and offer views of the gardens and reflecting pool.
Franklin Fountain and Ford Alumni Gardens
The Franklin Fountain and Reflecting Pool is the centerpiece of the award-winning Ford Alumni Gardens. Designed by landscape architect John Wang, the gardens include Palm Court, a courtyard with Mexican fan palms, fifty indigenous plant species and a beautiful stone terrace. On a sunny day, grab a bite from the Alumni Café and make the most of the grassy lawn and shaded patio seating.
The Bing Library is tucked away in the northeast corner of the business center. In this secluded refuge, you'll find bookshelves filled with historic Stanford tomes, books by alumni authors, and a selection of the day's newspapers and campus publications. Sink into a leather writer's chair, kick your feet up on an ottoman and enjoy the quiet.
