ME Design Group Faculty & Staff Directory (Stanford login required)

Planning a visit?
If you would like to meet with faculty or visit our facilities, we strongly suggest you make appointments, and do so as far in advance as possible.

Where are the Design Group faculty and administrative offices?
Most of the Design Group offices are in Building 550 (see map), also known as Peterson Laboratory. The street address is 416 Escondido Mall, but the building entrance closest to the Design Group offices is on Panama Mall, across from the Mechanical Engineering Research Lab (MERL).  Faculty office numbers are listed on their profiles.

There are two parking structures convenient to Building 550:

  • Via Ortega Garage (formerly known as Parking Structure 2), at Via Ortega and Panama Streets,
  • Roble Field Garage, entrance on Via Ortega, beneath Roble Field, between the Arrillaga Outdoor Education and Recreation Center and Roble Gym.

You can find up-to-date information about parking permits and other places to park at the Parking & Transportation website.

To Building 550 from the Via Ortega Garage
On foot, leave the Via Ortega Garage, cross Via Ortega and walk down Panama Street, which becomes Panama Mall.  Continue past the Mitchell Building (on your left).  Building 550 is on your left.  MERL and Center for Design Research (CDR) are on your right.

If you have any questions please call your host.

Where are the Design Group Labs?
Many of our labs are in buildings other than 550. Visit the Offices & Labs page for information about the lab or building you're interested in.
