At Stanford Redwood City yesterday, President Marc Tessier-Lavigne, Provost Persis Drell, Redwood City Mayor Ian Bain and Redwood City Vice Mayor Diane Howard cut a ceremonial red ribbon to celebrate the opening of the new state-of-the-art campus.
The Anne T. and Robert M. Bass Biology Research Building provides laboratory space for Stanford’s top-ranked Biology Department faculty and staff, as well as hundreds of graduate students and postdoctoral fellows.
Based on a process that relied on suggestions and research from the university community, the former Serra undergraduate dormitory and Serra House academic building will now honor two graduates who became world leaders in their fields.
The first floor of the Cecil H. Green Library will be renovated and renamed Hohbach Hall, offering improved access to curators, historians and materials that document the creation and continuing evolution of Silicon Valley.
Located 5 miles from the main campus, Stanford Redwood City, a 35-acre development, is the university’s first major expansion outside the main campus. Staff members are scheduled to begin moving in mid-March 2019.
