Feeling stressed? Overwhelmed by all you have to do? Or do you just need a quiet place to unwind on campus?

Zen Den II — BMU 301

Zen Den

Inside the Zen Den, you will find comfortable seating, self-care resources including coloring materials and stress-relief tools, and a wall full of reference books covering a variety of mental health and wellness topics.

Next to the Zen Den, you will find a private room with a massage chair and music to unwind. No appointment needed!

Zen Den II

This restful relaxation area boasts four massage chairs, three hammocks, and a strong focus on mental health and wellness.

Dimly lit by twinkle lights, the room is filled with calming waterfall sounds from a fountain along one wall. The main area has a living-room vibe with a sofa, chairs, and coffee table, and a half dozen bean bag chairs that can be positioned wherever desired. The side and back walls of the room have curtained-off areas for the hammocks and massage chairs so guests can relax in private.
