The Center for Spiritual and Religious Life is a welcoming place for curious, intentional, respectful engagement with persons of similar, different or no religious tradition, and for quiet personal reflection and spiritual practice.

We welcome all individuals and groups from the campus community and the Fox Valley who contribute to the goals of the Office of Spiritual and Religious Life. The Center has been designed to promote a balance of open space with planned gatherings. Each of the rooms can be reserved individually. 

We encourage a 'no shoes' environment, and several rooms may be reserved for use between 8 a.m. and 12 a.m. Rooms available for reservation are the kitchen / community room, meditation room, living room and  the second floor group room.  The first floor is fully accessible.  Persons using the community room are asked to read and agree to the shared kitchen policy.

Shoes and backpacks

Members of the Lawrence community, may reserve a room by using the LU Room Reservation System (find system instructions here).

Requests are managed based on availability at the time of the request, and we prefer three business days advanced notice.  Our practice is to have at least one open space available for drop-in usage at all times.
Approvals for space requests not specifically related to spiritual and religious practices will be managed on the schedule below.  This guideline is subject to change as the Center needs change and approval is at the discretion of the Center administration.
