White Chapel

Beautiful, inspiring, tranquil—Rose‑Hulman’s White Chapel is a refuge. It’s also a beautiful setting for weddings, special events and group meetings.

Visiting and Worshiping in the White Chapel

When classes are in session, the White Chapel is open from 11 a.m. - 7 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 11 a.m. - 5 p.m. on Fridays. Students, faculty, staff, and visitors may enjoy the view through the glass wall overlooking the lake or simply sit and pray or meditate quietly in the chairs. 

Services are held by various organizations throughout the school year and are open to anyone.

When not reserved for members of the Rose-Hulman community, White Chapel is available for rental by outside individuals and groups for special events such as weddings or memorial services.
