Campus Relaxation Spaces 

Located within the Counseling & Testing Center's office, 2106 Centennial Hall, is a Relaxation Room available to all UWL students. With lounge chairs and calming lights, it is a quiet, tranquil, and safe space for students to step away and relax between classes or after a stressful class.

The Relaxation Room is available on a first-come, first-served basis during CTC hours 8 AM- 4 PM Monday - Friday.  One student (or two friends) can check out the room for 30 minutes per day. You may stay longer if no one else is waiting for the room. 

Relaxation Room guests are not considered clients of CTC. We will ask for your name and Student ID to ensure only UWL students have access to the relaxation room. You must have your Student ID card with you, which will be kept secure at the front desk until you check out.

All CTC services are confidential. Relaxation Room guests are expected to maintain confidentiality. You may not reveal to another person the identities of any users of our service that you may recognize while at the CTC. Any violation of this confidentiality policy is grounds to terminate your right to use the Relaxation Room. 

For a full list of guidelines view the Relaxation Room Expectations poster. Upon your first visit, you will be asked to review the expectations. 

The Reflection Room is a space for prayer, worship or quiet contemplation. Located in the Center for Transformative Justice, 1120 Centennial Hall, this space is available for all students and employees.

This room can be used by people of all faith groups or those who do not identify with a particular faith but would like to use the room for quiet contemplation or reflection. 

For more information on hours and how to reserve the Reflection Room please visit the CTJ's website
