Loyola University Chicago

Retreat & Ecology Campus


Relax. Reflect. Refuel.

Welcome to 98 acres of prairies, savannas, woodlands, wetlands, and ponds - otherwise known as Loyola University Chicago's Retreat and Ecology Campus. Located in beautiful Woodstock, Illinois, our retreat facility welcomes guests to visit our ecologically friendly campus and experience the great outdoors through a multitude of interactive team building activities. The Retreat and Ecology Campus provides a serene setting for overnight conferences, retreats, workshops, classes, and special events, while allowing individuals to connect intellectually, spiritually, and through nature.

Our Mission

The mission of the Loyola University Retreat and Ecology Campus is twofold:

  1. To serve as a place for spiritual and intellectual growth through retreats and adventure programs
  2. To serve as a campus for study and research of the environment and ecological sustainability.

Green Promise

We have a fundamental guiding principle of conservation on our campus by reducing, reusing, and recycling. Loyola is committed to restoring and maintaining the biodiversity of our campus and invites you to join in our mission of sustainability, conservation, and restoration during your stay with us.
