Community Area & Kitchenette: A base for students who live off campus or take evening classes to heat a meal, catch the news, or recharge.

Esports Center: A new campus home for McMurry’s competitive esports team, the Esports Center will also be used to support academic programs.

Fitness & Wellness Center: With both exercise equipment and a multipurpose studio, this 5,000-square-foot center will be McMurry’s first comprehensive fitness and wellness facility.

Student Gathering Areas: Expanded and enhanced indoor and outdoor spaces for studying in groups or alone, cocurricular activities, or simply hanging out with friends.

The Shirley L. & Mildred Garrison United Methodist Campus Center

Completed in the fall of 1979, the Campus Center is a $22 million structure located in the center of McMurry’s campus. The Campus Center is a partially underground structure with grassy slopes rising around its walls. This structure is used for a wide variety of activities. Weekly campus worship services are held in its chapel, dances are held in its huge ballroom, students’ free time may be spent in the snack bar and game room. The Campus Center was renovated in 2001 to include new carpet in the ballroom, new furniture, and carpeting in the Windjammer’s lounge.

The Campus Center, as both a building and a concept, supports and augments the educational mission of the university by projecting classroom learning into the sphere of human experience.

The Campus Center hours are Sunday through Saturday, 24 hours daily, except in the Summer.
