Reflection & Prayer Spaces
Due to an existing demand on reflection spaces on campus, ASM Equity & Inclusion Committee has listed some spaces on campus that can be used by the UW-Madison community for meditation, prayers, and/or other suitable practices.
Each space is operated by building managers on the respective buildings.
