Support for our international and immigrant communities

If you need support with immigration issues, Stanford has resources standing by to help. Stanford’s support resources and commitments to its international and immigrant communities include:

Important facts to know:

  • Stanford keeps student and personnel records private and will not share such information with immigration agencies unless legally compelled to do so.
  • The Stanford Department of Public Safety does not have responsibility for immigration enforcement. Consistent with the approach of law enforcement agencies in Santa Clara County, it does not inquire about immigration status in the normal course of its duties and will not participate with other agencies in immigration enforcement activities unless legally required to do so.
  • A campus working group on immigration issues continues meeting to respond to the emerging needs of the campus community. This website has further details about support resources available across the campus.
