Building Manager – MRH “Music and Recital Hall”
512 471 2725
MRH is the current designation that appears on all official university maps but BSOM occupies a space that was previously considered two connected buildings: the western portion of MRH was once called MBE “Music Building East”. That designation is used internally and by Lock and Key Services ONLY. Do not use that designation when communicating with constituencies outside of BSOM.

If you feel unsafe in MRH dial 911 from an office phone or your cell phone. The call will route to UTPD. Their response time is excellent given our proximity to their station.
