Reflection Room now open in Hayden Library

An unexamined life is not worth living.” – Socrates

University life can be demanding of one's time and energy.

If you're looking for a break from the rush – a quiet place to unplug and simply just be – check out the ASU Library’s new Reflection Room, now open in Hayden Library, on the ASU Tempe campus, in room L47.

Offering a simple, Zen-like ambiance with minimal décor and a clock that resists the urge to mark time, the room is intended to be a quiet space for the ASU community to relax, take a breath and settle the mind.

The room’s directional signs – North, East, South and West – aim to provide a sense of grounding for the anxious, the overwhelmed or the chronically busy. 

All are welcome.
