Frequently Asked Questions

Please read the Serenity Space Agreement.  Many of your questions will likely be answered there.  Here are a few others that you might have.

Will there be an “official” file kept on me if I use the Space?

No.  The Serenity Space is a separate entity from Counseling and other direct clinical services.  We only ask for name, contact information, and emergency contact.

Do you have to talk to a counselor to use the Space?

No.  Counselors are not involved with the Serenity Space.  The time in there is for you to spend alone and rejuvenate.

Can I study or grade papers in there?

No.  Your time in there is for you to focus on yourself and your well-being.

Do I have to make a reservation?

Reservations are recommended, but if there is an open reservation time when you walk in, you will be allowed to begin a session.

How long are the sessions?

Reservations are made in 30 minute increments.

Can I bring a friend/coworker?

No.  Only one person at a time is allowed in the room.  Exceptions are made for those with personal attendants.

Is there a fee?

No.  Generous contributions from The Student Services departments, Campus Recreation and University Counseling Center, and the community businesses, Emile’s Furniture; The Carrot Patch; and Jennings Chiropractic made the room possible.
