The SCU campus has a rich history. We've heard many people say that just walking onto campus they've felt the sense that there's something special about this place. We certainly think so!

Mission Santa Clara de Asis: At the heart of the campus, this venue is the gathering place for many on-campus prayer experiences.

Mission Gardens: Adjacent to the Mission Church. If you're a squirrel watcher, this is the place to be! Apart from that, verdant lawns, rose bushes, and the oldest wisteria vine in the state all contribute to the sense of peace in this space.

Meditation Room: There is a meditation room in Benson Memorial Center across from the information desk, open during regular Benson building hours. Take a break from the busyness of your day and enjoy a quiet and tranquil moment in the meditation room.

Multifaith Sanctuary: Located in St. Joseph's Hall, this venue is available for worship, prayer, retreats, and small groups. Please contact the director of religious diversity for more information.
