IT Tips For Campus Return

As Stanford transitions into the recovery phase of returning to on-site work, various School of Engineering departments will participate in campus return trials. With the resumption of campus operations, SoE IT has compiled a guide below to assist you in your return. To help with the technological needs of our Engineering constituents, the SoE IT Service Desk team will be operational and on-site.

Please review the checklists below before arriving on campus.

Don't forget your phone! Duo's two-factor authentication is likely installed on your mobile phone.
