Stanford is internationally known for its gorgeous facilities and landscape. Palm trees line the main road, and most dorms are inspired by Spanish architecture, with courtyards and gardens. Overall, Stanford's well-kept facilities include two major student centers—both with study rooms, conference rooms, televisions, and restaurants. Every dorm has a computer cluster, and every facility on campus has wireless Internet. Clearly, Stanford makes sure that students have everything they need.
Students study in various locations around campus. While some enjoy the library facilities, others study in departments, community centers, dorm lounges, coffeehouses, and on a nice day, outside in the fields. While the student unions are sometimes criticized for not having convenient hours, everyone finds their "place" on campus to hang out with friends or do homework.
