What is the weather like at Stanford?
Stanford’s location on the San Francisco Peninsula governs its summer weather pattern. In the immediate campus area, the summer norm calls for cool mornings and nights, with warmer days and evenings. Program outings to San Francisco will expose students to much cooler weather, so it’s important to pack some sweatshirts and a jacket to have on hand when the temperature drops. In general, rain is minimal at most, and humidity is low to non-existent.
