Catering Guide

Main content start

While there is no comprehensive listing of all catering options available to use for campus events, we have put together a list of on-campus catering options, and approved off-campus vendors to assist with your event planning. *Note inclusion on this list does not constitute an endorsement and does not guarantee vendors are approved for all venues on campus. This information is subject to change without notice.

Stanford R&DE Catering Options

Stanford Residential & Dining Enterprises' Hospitality and Auxiliaries' team offers many options for catering and event planning. By using R&DE catering, you are directly supporting University programs and students. All revenue goes back into the organization and helps subsidize the cost of room and board for Stanford students.
