Retreat & Ecology Campus

Loyola Faculty & Staff


Loyola University's Retreat and Ecology Campus (LUREC) provides a peaceful setting where individuals and groups are empowered to do the work necessary for reconnection and renewal of the mind, body, and spirit. The LUREC facility supports the principles of Transformative Education in the Jesuit tradition and fosters collaboration between university partners, departments, faculty, and staff. We offer faculty/staff an opportunity to use the Retreat and Ecology Campus as a place of personal reflection as well as professional growth and development.

Plan your next staff development training, enrichment exercise, team building, or staff getaway with us. Enjoy gorgeous natural surroundings, comfortable sleeping rooms, and freshly prepared meals during your stay at LUREC.

Overnight retreat packages include:

  • Housing accommodations
  • Up to three meals in our dining room
  • Meeting rooms
  • Break-out rooms
  • Audiovisual equipment

Our meeting spaces have been made to welcome you and your group and encourage a true retreat experience. Enjoy plush furnishings, ample lighting, and privacy in all of our meeting spaces. Select from hotel-style or dorm-style rooms for your overnight accommodations. We will work with your budget to make your meeting or retreat successful, relaxing, and memorable.
