Meditation Space Policy

Stewart Library has made two small rooms available for quiet contemplation, meditation and religious/spiritual observances on a temporary basis. Weber State University’s Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Division is working on a more permanent space. They are located on the third floor of the library in rooms 304 and 306.

  • The Meditation Space is to be used for quiet contemplation, meditation and religious/spiritual observances  and not as a lounge, or meeting room.

  • Thus, the space cannot be reserved by individual students or student groups for private events or occasions. However, the space is available to WSU students, staff, faculty, and community members while the library building is open. The space is available for increments of thirty minutes at a time to make it available for others.

  • Please respect the requirements for a peaceful and quiet atmosphere.

  • As some forms of meditation require intense concentration and privacy, please respect others by:

    • Respecting the privacy/room in use sign and waiting for your turn quietly if the space is occupied

    • Respecting usage of the space for and the time limits to make it available for others.

    • Turning your phone on silent upon entry into the space.

    • If you do plan to use music, use headphones at a volume that will not distract others.

    • Refrain from consuming food within this space (drinking water is permitted).

  • The use of fire, including lit candles or incense, is not permitted within the library.

  • This is a community space. Please keep it clean by removing meditation materials and personal belongings when you leave the space.

  • Please respect others' freedom within the law to express their beliefs and convictions through prayer and/or meditation.

Please help us assess the use of this room so that we can plan for a more permanent meditation space. Go to the form via this QR code and leave the date and time that you used this space and, if you would like, a comment on the value of having this space available for you. No names or personal information will be collected.
