McMurtry Building

McMurtry Building at day

The McMurtry Building is located at 355 Roth Way, between the Cantor Arts Center and Parking Structure 1. See the McMurtry Building on the Stanford campus map

The McMurtry Building opened for classes in fall 2015. Housed within 96,000 square feet of this academic building are programs in art practice, art history, film and media studies, and documentary film and video.

We regret that we generally do not allow events, receptions, and retreats in the McMurtry Building, as it is the home of a busy academic department and library. Requests for exceptions should be directed to the Director of Finance and Operations. Those programming arts events may request evening and weekend use of Oshman Hall.

To report an issue in the McMurtry Building, please use the Building Work Request Form.
