The SPARK administrative offices are located in the Center for Clinical Sciences Research (CCSR) at Stanford University Medical Center in Palo Alto, California. CCSR is located at 269 Campus Drive, bordered by Campus Drive, Welch Road, and Pasteur Drive.
Getting to SPARK/CCSR once on campus
The building consists of two separate structures joined together in the center by a walkway and a set of outdoor glass elevators.
Take the elevators up to the offices on either the third or fourth floor.
- Offices in CCSR 3145: as you exit the elevator, turn left toward the north wing (corridor walls painted green) and right in the hallway – the offices will be in the first suite on your right.
- Offices in CCSR 4155: as you exit the elevator, turn left toward the north wing (corridor walls painted green) and right in the hallway – the offices will be in the last suite on your right.
Paid parking for visitors is available in parking lots and at metered spaces around campus.
During the business day, the best option for visitor parking is the “L-17” parking lot on Stock Farm Road, near the corner of Welch Road and Campus Drive or “S-1” located at Roth Way and Campus Drive.
There is also very limited visitor parking available in the “L-15” lot, off of Campus Drive and behind Beckman Center.
Due to extensive construction on the Stanford campus parking may be limited. We recommend that visitors use a car service (Uber, Lyft, etc) or Stanford’s free shuttle service (The Marguerite) when possible.
From Palo Alto Transit Center (Caltrain), take the free “X Line” shuttle bus to the School of Medicine.
