Have you seen the new Sensory Room? The University Libraries invite you to an open house! The new Sensory Room in Wilson Library promotes calm and focus, especially for people who are overwhelmed by sensory input, and/or those who need a sensory outlet to maintain focus. It can also just be a relaxing place to work individually or with others. It includes adjustable lighting, a sit/stand desk, exercise ball, fidgets, weighted lap pad, wobble seat, pillows, and more. The space is in the basement of Wilson Library (West Bank) and can be reserved for up to two hours per day. The Sensory Room is available to all students and employees of the University.
