Stanford is a Caltrain station in Palo Alto, California, next to the stadium on the Stanford University campus. It is only used on football game days and lacks both ticket vending machines and Clipper card readers.

For service on non-game days, the campus can still be accessed from Palo Alto Station with the help of the Marguerite Shuttle and from the California Avenue station by foot and by bicycle.
