Wellness Resources

This guide is intended to help students, staff, faculty, and practitioners at UNM connect with wellness resources and best practices to help avoid burnout in conjunction with their work and research.

What is the Wellness Room?

We know that wellness is crucial to academic success. With that in mind Room 316 in the Health Sciences Library has been set up to be a space for you to take a break, meditate, pray, decompress, remove yourself from stimulants, and more.

  • You do not need a reservation to use the room. There is a sign on the door that can be flipped to vacant or in use.

Guidelines for using the space

  • For your privacy, use the occupied sign on the door and switch it to vacant when finished
  • Feel free to use any of the supplies but please leave them in the room
  • Be considerate of others' need for time in the space
  • Please understand this is a room to take a break and not a study room. To book a study room please use our reservation page
  • For any issues with your visit please contact: Varina Kosovich
