I was here for a wedding and it was perfect size for a small wedding party. Stained glass windows are very pretty. Chapel is a little dark, making photography challenging, but can be done.

I went to school at TWU and lived in the dorms that tower over the Little Chapel in the Woods. It's a lovely old fashioned chapel. The lighting can be a little dark, so if you want pictures, make sure the photographer has the ability and appropriate equipment to take nice pictures.

I got married in this chapel in 1993 - and it is one of the most beautiful and quaint chapels around, located on the Texas Women's University campus. Beautiful stained glass windows with details of the Proverbs 31 woman, it's the perfect place for a SMALL wedding. We did just that, and had a big reception nearby at Hubbard Hall.

This is not like a beautiful fancy Cathedral you come across in Europe - but if you are looking for a little adventure and a pleasant way to experience and attraction, you'll love this. The hardest part is parking for this place - you need to find it on a nearby street (see below). Beyond that - its not just... More

My husband and I took our small children and we parked near the University and just walked to the chapel. The walk was leading up to the Chapel was beautiful as well not just the Chapel alone. We didn't stay long. Took some pictures and we left. Just it was a nice time with my family.

Perhaps I didn't know where I was going (but it's small) and I didn't see much to it. In my opinion it was boring.

The Little Chapel has been a part of the TWU campus since 1938. The stained glass windows on each side depict women and their roles in life. Ecumenical services are held on Sundays when the university is in session.
