Office Location

The Center is excited to be moving to larger, newly renovated office space on the garden level of Encina Hall (see Stanford Campus Map), with entrance points from the east and central wings of the building. The move is anticipated for mid-October, 2019. 

Until mid-October, you can find us at our old office in Encina Hall West 208 (second floor, west wing).

After the move, we'll be located at in Encina Hall Central, Suite 30 (garden level, entrances available from east and central wings) 


Until about October 15, 2019, we are physically located on the second floor of Encina Hall West (on the side of the building facing Hoover Tower). Enter on the Hoover-facing west side of the building and take the elevator to the second floor.  Our office is in Room 208, immediately in front of you when you step off the elevator.  

After we move, visitors can access our new space via one of three entrance points: (1) from the ground floor entrance to the east wing of Encina hall, along Arguello way, straight through the first pair of double doors in front of you; (2) from Bechtel Courtyard, facing away from Encina Commons, head toward the sunken back patio near the east wing of the building (the one further away from Hoover Tower). You will find a doorway marked with the Handa Center's name and logo; (3) coming from the main entrance at the front of Encina Hall, you can proceed down the main stairs to the garden level, and follow the signs to the new Handa Center offices.

If you are driving, the closest parking is the underground Knight Management Center parking garage, beneath Stanford's Graduate School of Business, across the street. 

Mailing Address

Our mailing address will be unchanged by the move, however, please note that the campus is renaming the street where Encina Hall is located.  As of October 2019, the former Serra Mall is now "Jane Stanford Way," so mail should be addressed to:
