Deloitte University

Westlake, Texas

At Deloitte University, the company sets in stone its priority of growing leaders and encouraging the free exchange of ideas. Located on a 107-acre former cattle ranch, this 717,000-square-foot corporate retreat includes 800 guestrooms, 36 multipurpose training rooms, a ballroom, amphitheater, café, fitness center and entertainment venue. The architecture reflects contemporary Texas Hill Country–style, with local stone and rough-cut wood beams and rustic furniture to create warm interiors for the 35,000 employees expected to visit annually. Views of rolling hills, oaks and ponds enhance the resort-like feel that invites collaboration through chance meetings as well as scheduled events.
