Tour Sign-up

Thanks for your interest in VHIL! Below, you will be able to register yourself and a maximum of three other guests. Please don’t register more people than you are absolutely sure can attend, since you are taking spots from other guests. We also can’t accommodate specific times or dates. Open tours will occur on select dates and times listed below. There is also a waitlist option for dates that are full.

Once you register, you will receive a confirmation email confirming your spot. If you are on a waitlist, you will be contacted if a space opens up.

Before coming to the lab, we would like you to do some “homework” so that you can understand the motivation for our work and the practical applications of our virtual worlds. The best way to do this is to read Jeremy Bailenson’s book Infinity Reality, which highlights and explains our lab’s research, available here:

Infinite Reality: Avatars, Eternal Life, New Worlds, and the Dawn of the Virtual Revolution »

However buying the book is not mandatory for a tour of course, and for those who prefer video to print, we have a free presentation about the lab’s work online here:

Virtual Reality: Experience on Demand »

We look forward to meeting you!


The lab is at the end of Palm Drive on Stanford Campus, in the Main Quad. The address is 450 Serra Mall, Stanford, CA. We are in McClatchy Hall, Building 120. As you approach the quad from the top of the oval at the end of Palm Drive, McClatchy is the first building facing front, left of center. Enter the building and take the hallway to the left, then take the elevator to the fourth floor. The entrance to the lab is through the glass doors directly outside of the elevator, room 411.

Parking can be a challenge on campus, I’d come a bit early to accommodate for that. As you are driving down Palm Drive, you’ll come to an intersection at Roth Way just before you hit the oval. Turn right on Roth Way to find the visitor parking spots. If you continue on Roth, there are also visitor spots on Lomita Drive, and further down in the parking structure at the intersection of Roth and Campus Drive.
