In the crystal structure of the title compound, C6H7N·CH4N2O, the 2-methylpyridine and urea molecules are linked via N-HO and N-HN hydrogen bonds, forming ribbons extending along the a axis. The dihedral angle between the 2-methylpyridine and urea mean planes is 89.09 (9)°. The methyl group shows rotational disorder wherein the H atoms are located over two sets of sites with equal occupancies.
