Restorative Spaces

A home to nurture student well-being.

Informed by the research -- and guided by insight from focus groups with students, faculty and staff -- McWell is internally piloting ways to integrate wellness into physical space.  Students can reserve the following:  

The Break Room

The Break Room

You work hard and we want you to give yourself a break. Reserve our Break Room with a few of your friends and come try new things in our stress-relieving space.  We have games, music, and creative supplies to help you relax and have fun.  



The Living Room

Living Room Resized

Welcome to your home away from home. The Living Room has been designed to meet your studying needs. Grab a cup of our free tea or coffee and a snack, and dive into your books. You'll find comfy chairs and pillows, a huge dry erase board, and a soothing fireplace.

The Fort


In need of some green? The Fort will bring nature to you. Relax and unwind in McWell's smallest space. You'll find nature-themed cozy furniture, inspiring art, and even nature sounds. Bring your books, use it for a prayer or meditative space, or take a nap - it can be tailored to meet your needs. Due to the size of the room, the maximum capacity is two students.
