The Bechtel Conference Center at Encina Hall is the University's premier full-service event venue that uniquely reflects the historical beauty and character of Stanford campus. Painstakingly restored to its 1881 grandeur, the BCC's exquisite ambiance and central location make it ideal for your most important events. The intimate setting belies its large capacity and robust technical capabilities.

BCC Closed May through October 2018

In 2018, the BCC is remodeling to provide new outdoor venue space and upgraded technical equipment. Due to related construction, the BCC will only be able to host evening events through the end of April 2018. The BCC will be closed entirely beginning May 1 through October 1, 2018.

The BCC will return to evening event reservations only from October 1, 2018 through January 2, 2019.
