Hartley Conference Center

The Hartley Conference Center located in the Mitchell Building  is primarily a meeting and seminar room.

It is a single room of approx. 1100 sq ft (approx. 45 ft x 25 ft) on the ground floor. Conference room doors open onto Mitchell patio. See Hartley Floor Plan.

Eight 3 ft x 6 ft rectangular birch tables and two half-round tables with a 3 ft radius form a standard boardroom arrangement, seating up to 24 people on upholstered chairs, with 16 extra chairs around the perimeter of the room. If the tables are flipped and moved into the kitchen, the chairs can be arranged in theater-style rows to accommodate 60 people. 

Food and drinks must be served in the Hartley kitchen.  If it is really necessary for food and drinks to be served from a table(s) in the room, then these tables must be clothed. Drinks coasters are provided and must be used on the tables.

Separate switches in each half of the room control perimeter and overhead lights with dimmers. Air-conditioning for each half of the room is activated manually by two separate timers located near the light switches.

There is no charge for events related to the School of Earth, Energy & Environmental Sciences, or for Stanford PhD thesis defenses. Other events are billed (see use instructions). The Hartley Conference Center is reserved in half-hour blocks; your reservation time must include set-up and clean-up time.
