Hendrix-Murphy Programs in Literature and Language

Visitor Accommodations

Visiting faculty and guest lecturers may stay in one of two apartments on the third level of the Murphy Building. Lodging includes a one-bedroom apartment with kitchenette and a “bedsitter” with bath, a single room similar to a hotel room.

The apartment lodges principally long-term visitors, who come to Hendrix for several weeks or a semester to direct student plays, conduct workshops, or teach classes.

The bedsitter accommodates shorter term visitors, who deliver lectures or readings and visit a few classes during a two- or three-day visit.



From Interstate 40, take Exit 125 and follow Highway 65 Business (Harkrider Street) for about half a mile. Travel past The Village at Hendrix on your left and you will come to a roundabout where you will make a right turn onto Winfield Street, and an immediate quick left into the first drive into the Hendrix campus. Follow the drive as it curves around the end of a large building. As you come to the end of that drive, the Bertie Wilson Murphy Building will be in front of and just to the right of you. You will see two parking spaces on your left, next to an open-work brick wall.
