Stanford, California

Stanford is a census-designated place (CDP) within unincorporated Santa Clara County, California, adjacent to the city of Palo Alto. The CDP of Stanford has an estimated population of 13,800 and is largely made up of Stanford University, an American private research university.

Stanford University is situated on an 8,180-acre campus. Although some of the university land (including the Stanford Shopping Center and the Stanford Research Park) is within the city limits of Palo Alto, the campus also includes much land in unincorporated San Mateo County. Stanford was founded by Leland Stanford, a railroad magnate, United States Senator, and former California Governor; and his wife, Jane Stanford. After six years of planning and building, the university officially opened on October 1, 1891, to 559 students and 15 faculty members. In the 2010-2011 year, Stanford enrolled 6,887 undergraduate and 8,779 graduate students. The university is organized into seven schools including academic schools of Humanities and Sciences and Earth Sciences as well as professional schools of Business, Education, Engineering, Law, and Medicine.

The CDP of Stanford has several jobsites known for their use of asbestos-containing materials, making asbestos exposure an ongoing concern.
