Mindfulness Studio

The Mindfulness Studio may be used by up to four people at a time. The room may be accessed by current UF students, faculty, and staff by borrowing a key from the 2nd floor Circulation Desk. Users have access to the room for 30 mins and are asked to close and lock the room before returning the key.

This is a shared, intentional space. While meeting the needs of your practice, please be respectful and accommodating to others.


The Mindfulness Studio is located on the southeast corner of the 1st floor in room 140 next to the One Button Studio.

Wudu Station

The purpose of a Wudu Station is to perform a religious form of cleaning oneself before prayer. Prayers are five times a day, and performing Wudu shows ablution before these daily prayers. The act involves washing your hands, mouth, nose, face, hair, ears, arms and feet before praying.

The Wudu Station at Library West is located a few steps from our Mindfulness Studio and is made available to our students who wish to perform Wudu before using the space.
