Student Resources

Student Learning Connection

VPTL supports a range of services for Stanford students to help them optimize their learning potential. These include academic skills coaching, tutoring, and language practice for learners as well as mentoring and development support for graduate and postdoctoral students who teach.

Student Technology Services

Through our teams in the Lathrop Learning hub and our residential computer consultants across campus, this is a one-stop-shop for all student technology needs. Our team helps students get devices set up and connected, protect their information, and troubleshoot. Students can use the 24-hour Study Space, our iMacs for image, audio and video production, and our 3D printer.

Lathrop Learning Hub

Lathrop Learning Hub is a central campus nucleus for student academic and technology support services. Many services are conveniently aggregated on-site on the first floor of Lathrop Library, while other services based in Lathrop are delivered in widely distributed locations across campus.

Digital Language Lab

The Digital Language Lab is the multilingual computing and assessment hub at Stanford, offering reliable audio and video recording capability, foreign language digital media content, software images to support computing in multiple foreign character sets, and state of the art teaching spaces. The Digital Language Lab’s mission is to provide resources, facilities, and support for language instruction and learning to the entire Stanford community.
