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 include a kitchen / community room, meditation room, and living room.  On the second floor an additional group room is available for reservation.  This Center does not have an elevator and groups or persons using the kitchen will be asked to read the shared kitchen policy.

Shoes and backpacks

Members of the Lawrence community, can 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 are preferred with a notice of three business days.  It is the practice of the Center for Spiritual and Religious Life to try and keep open space available for drop-in usage.
In order to allow for this option, 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.
