Cancelled for this academic year--Pet Away Worry and Stress monthly events. 11am-1pm in the Kirby Student Lounge. We will also have a few pets in the Garage space across the hall for a quieter experience for students who may prefer that. The focus of PAWS is to decrease stress levels in students, faculty and staff, with therapy animals. This collaborative event is sponsored by Animal Allies, KUMD, The Kathyrn A. Martin Library, UMD Health Services, the Department of Psychology, the Office of Environmental Health & Safety, and Kirby Student Center.

Cancelled for this academic year--Designated Nap Zone on campus!  The Underground in the Kirby Student Center will be a designated nap zone every weekday, 2-3pm. It will be available for use as usual for studying, etc, but signs will be posted honoring a quieter space during those days and times.  For more information about sleep and napping, visit Health Services Sleep Education & Initiatives web page. Napping is not recommended for students within insomnia, or difficulty sleeping on a regular basis.  Please make a free appointment with a UMD Health Services Counselor for support.
