Stud to Technic Hole is a connection between parts with the studs (either normal or hollow studs work) such as bricks, plates, technic beams, etc. and parts with a round hole (the hole that takes a Technic Pin) Such parts include Technic beams, half beams, some holes in lift arms etc.

The connection allows rotation but the friction is very high, so the connection has 1 degree of freedom Note also that many studded parts, especially those with more than one stud, have features which limit the amount of movement allowed, if any, or even limit insertion at all. However when this connection can be made it is very strong as it is an interference fit.

There is some concern that long term use of this connection will cause cracking in the part that the stud is inserted into.

Note:This is a Connection System article and should be illustrated with pictures or renderings of the connection type, details, and should give dimensions in LDU of the key parts of the connection where that makes sense.

Connection System articles use the ConnectionTypeBox template, comments welcomed on whether all the necessary information is there, see its talk page for more usage info or to comment.
