Q&A: number of students at Stanford?

Question:

I'm looking for the number of students at Stanford. Is there a resource I can use to find that figure?

Answer: 

The Stanford University Common Data Set has the number students here (both undergraduate and graduate), as well information on academic offerings and policies, student life, annual expenses, financial aid, and instructional faculty and class size. You can also get up-to-date admission information from the Undergraduate Admission website in the Stanford Preview.

There are currently 6,602 undergraduates and 11,896 graduate students, for a total number of 18,498.
