The Chapel of the Resurrection is the centerpiece structure on the campus of Valparaiso University in Valparaiso, Indiana. It has been described as the largest collegiate chapel in the United States and the second largest collegiate chapel in the world. Because judgments about the relative size of such buildings can be difficult, other universities have made similar claims (e.g., Duke Chapel, Stanford Memorial Church).Primarily used to facilitate many Lutheran campus worship services, the Chapel of the Resurrection also serves as a site for convocations, musical performances, guest lectures, and commencement ceremonies.The chapel's chancel is 98ft high and is circular in shape; the roof of the apse is shaped like a nine-pointed star. The nave is 58ft high and 193ft long. The building capacity is around 2000, although this number is flexible depending upon the configuration of the pews, which are moveable. To the southwest of the Chapel lies the Brandt Campanile, a 12-bell tower rising 143ft tall.Clearly visible from U.S. Route 30 and throughout the surrounding community, the building is located on the highest point of ground on the Valparaiso University campus and is a Northwest Indiana landmark.
