Our Shared Space

The way we choose to use our space says a lot about our priorities. Through events and inclusive physical spaces across campus, we’re committed to giving members of the University community places to come together and feel safe, included and supported.

Inclusive Spaces

Wellness Zone

The Wellness Zone located in Pierpont Commons offers a variety of ways to unwind and de-stress, such as massage chairs, SAD light therapy, meditation and yoga tools, and other wellness resources.

Reflection Rooms

Reflection rooms offer space for meditation, prayer and/or time in quiet reflection. U-M provides three reflection rooms on north campus – in Pierpont Commons, the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science building and the North Campus Research Complex. University-wide there are 15 such spaces available.

Lactation Rooms

U-M is home to 54 lactation and personal care rooms, including several on north campus. They provide private and comfortable space for nursing mothers.
