Image of Reflection Room


This room is open to all students, staff, faculty, and visitors of the University of Iowa. The Reflection Room serves as a space to foster mindfulness, providing a quiet place for meditation, contemplation, or calming sensory overload. Silence is valued in this space.


The Reflection Room provides subdued lighting, a multi-use floor mat, a white-noise machine, and compass indicators for directional focus.


Specific guidelines are posted in the Reflection Room. However, this space is designed for individual use to promote calm and mindfulness, so if you are looking for a study space please use one of the many others available throughout Hardin Library.  Please be considerate of other users  of this space by cleaning up after yourself, avoid introducing any scents, and limit use of the room to 45 minutes.
