Space to meet your needs

Whether you need a room for a private, personal retreat or meeting space to accommodate a large group, our facilities can meet your needs.  Our resources include:

Residence Halls.  Each hall has an average of 35 rooms, along with a chapel, small kitchenette, and lounge area.  There are four halls available during the academic year and six available during the summer months.  Some halls are equipped with private suites with full baths for individuals to experience solitude.

Campus Center.  Ideal for larger groups, this building near the lake is suited for confirmation retreats or casual get-togethers.  Chairs and tables can be arranged for conference-style meetings and meals, and the patio is ideal for outdoor gatherings.

Meeting & Dining Rooms.  Need an off-site gathering space?  Our campus includes many meeting rooms to accommodate the size of your group, including classrooms of varying sizes. Our small dining room is suitable for up to 25 people, and our main dining room can hold up to 300.   Tables and seating are flexible depending on your needs, and A/V equipment is available.

Auditorium.  For large groups up to 400 people, our auditorium offers comfortable seating and a stage for special presentations.

Beautiful artwork offers inspiration

Our campus is home to over 45 mosaic tile images of the saints as well as two very large stained glass walls in the chapel, providing rich artistry to aid in contemplation.  Wooded walking trails including Stations of the Cross on the west side of campus offer a special place for prayer and reflection.
