Last updated 9/30/22 - In partnership with Stanford’s Environmental Health & Safety Department, we will be continuing to monitor the COVID-19 situation and update accordingly.
Will there be an in-person undergraduate reunion on campus in 2022?
Yes. Stanford Reunion Homecoming will be held in person on campus, October 20–23, 2022. We are excited to welcome back undergraduate classes ending in 2 and 7.
When can I register for Stanford Reunion Homecoming? How much will it cost?
Will children be allowed to attend? Will there be programs and activities for them?
There will be limited activities for children at Reunion Homecoming this year.
We recognize that COVID-19 policies, guidance and protocols differ throughout the country and across the globe. As a premier campus event, Stanford Reunion Homecoming has aligned with the university, and when appropriate, with Santa Clara County and the State of California on our approach to the health and safety of our community. We look forward to welcoming back our alumni and friends to another celebratory reunion. Everyone is encouraged to do their part to keep the community as safe as possible and to comply with the guidance and protocols detailed below. Please note that due to the nature and the size of Reunion Homecoming, in some instances the university has required reunion attendees to adhere to more stringent policies than at other events on campus.
There is a risk that you might acquire COVID while participating in this program. Each participant must assess their own risk tolerance and make their own decision as to whether or not they feel comfortable attending, understanding that there is a chance of becoming infected.
Will attendees be required to be fully vaccinated?
Vaccinations are strongly recommended for reunion attendees. Proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test will not be required to attend reunion. This policy is subject to change. If you are traveling internationally, please read the next Frequently Asked Question.
Will international or out-of-state alumni be allowed to attend?
Yes. International travelers may participate in masked activity on campus after receiving a negative rapid COVID test upon arrival to the U.S., and may resume unmasked activity after a negative rapid COVID test on Day 5.
Airline and international entry testing and quarantine requirements are continually changing at the local, national and international level, and require prior planning. Under current restrictions, for instance, non-citizens seeking entry to the United States must provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test prior to boarding a U.S. bound flight. The Centers for Disease Control, U.S. Department of State, International SOS and Stanford’s Global Risk office provide valuable guidance for outbound and inbound travel.
All international travelers should have a self-isolation plan, and available funds, in case they test positive and are unable to travel to the United States as planned. Travelers should also consider the availability, adequacy and cost of medical care in the destination location, as well as significant constraints in providing medical evacuation should the need arise.
Updates for travelers are published on the Stanford Travelers page.
Is COVID-19 testing required to attend Reunion Homecoming:
No. For all attendees, it is not required, but strongly encouraged in order to maintain a safe event environment and promote the well-being of our students, faculty, staff, and reunion attendees.
Will attendees be required to wear masks?
Stanford strongly recommends masking indoors and in crowded outdoor settings. Masking is required in classrooms, except while speaking; in healthcare facilities, including Vaden Health Center and Stanford hospitals and clinics; indoors at SLAC; and on Marguerite buses. Individuals in Stanford facilities outside Santa Clara County are expected to follow local masking mandates (e.g. SLAC).

If I was exposed to someone with COVID-19 or COVID-19-like symptoms, can I still attend reunion?
You may attend reunion only if you were exposed more than 10 days prior AND have not encountered any COVID-19-like symptoms.
How do I check if there were positive COVID-19 cases prior to or during Reunion Homecoming?
Please visit Stanford's COVID Dashboards which provides various daily and weekly updates about COVID surveillance testing, Health Check submissions, isolation, and prevalence in the Stanford community or visit the potential building exposure list.
