Serenity and Mindfulness Room

Given the fast pace of life at Harvard, the FDO, College Dean’s Office, and Center for Wellness partnered to create a space on the garden level of Grays Hall west for students to find peace, explore mindfulness practices, and simply take a break from their studies.

The Grays serenity room is a technology- and study-free space, equipped with self-guided meditations, ample cushions and zafus, as well as hot water and tea bags for relaxation. Open 24 hours a day, seven days per week, students enjoy the flexibility of the space: some use it between classes, whereas others take a break late in the evening or early in the morning. The Center for Wellness also provides programming, such as Koru Mindfulness
workshops and yoga, in the space.
