Restorative Spaces

A home to nurture student well-being.

*Please note that McWell Restorative Spaces are limited to 1 student per room per reservation until 3/1/21.*

Informed by the research -- and guided by insight from focus groups with students, faculty, and staff -- the McDonald Center for Student Well-Being is integrating well-being into physical spaces across campus. Located on the 2nd Floor of Saint Liam Hall, students can reserve the following rooms at McWell.  Feel free to use these rooms to study, meditate, pray, play, socialize, or for telehealth appointments.  Contact us if you would like to learn how to create your own well-space.

Please note that during Fall 2020, the staff will be taking additional precautions to keep the restorative spaces clean before and after use.  If you have any questions about cleaning protocols, please don't hesitate to ask a staff member. Please note that reservations for the spaces are required this year.
