Can students see other student information?

Email addresses:

Students cannot see each other’s email addresses. However, they can send each other messages from the Canvas Inbox tool located in the global navigation.

Roster Photos:

Students cannot access the Roster Photos tool which includes all officially enrolled students’ Stanford ID photos. If students say they can see photos of their classmates in Canvas, it is because Canvas users have the option to add a Canvas profile photo of themselves which allows other users to see their chosen profile photo.


Students will never see grades of other students, regardless of whether or not the Grades tool is hidden on the course navigation.
