Interfaith Prayer Room

The Interfaith Prayer Room in the Library was created during the summer of 2013 in response to student need and is a quiet, reflective space for all members of our community to enjoy. It is located at BL-021, in the lower level of the library, along the rear wall, next to the Emeritus Suite and along the Hughes Avenue side of the building.
