Loyola University Chicago

Retreat & Ecology Campus

Loyola Students


The Retreat & Ecology Campus 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. We promote the integration of prayer, reflection, and discernment into your busy academic and personal lives. We encourage you to attend a University-sponsored retreat through the Office of Student Development and Campus Ministry.

We also offer an opportunity for student organizations to visit the campus and organize their own retreats and programs using the beautiful facilities and grounds available. Get away from the city lights and enjoy the beautiful country. Visit for the day and enjoy nature walks and team building exercises, or stay with us for a complete overnight retreat experience.

Overnight retreat packages include:

  • Up to three meals in our dining room
  • Meeting rooms
  • Break-out rooms
  • Audiovisual equipment
  • Double-occupancy sleeping rooms

Student organizations must work with their advisor or an Office of Student Development staff member to organize a retreat getaway. A professional staff member or advisor must also be present at the facility during the duration of the retreat.
