About the Serenity Suite

Now Open! Book Your Reservation Today!

We're excited to introduce the Serenity Suite, a dedicated space where students can slow down, reflect, and relax between studying and classes.

At the Drexel Libraries, we believe that students thrive when they are centered, focused, and in an environment that supports their unique needs and preferences.

The Libraries’ new Serenity Suite is a space where Drexel Dragons can relax, refocus, and reenergize. Engage in various relaxation and intellectual wellness activities that fit your needs—whether you’re looking to relax and meditate for a few minutes, clear your mind with a puzzle, or boost your energy levels with a few yoga poses.

The Drexel University Libraries is committed to supporting students' individual needs through guidance, equipment, information resources, and spaces that enhance Drexel students’ desire and ability to concentrate and contributes to their full engagement in self-managed balance and well-being.

The Serenity Suite is located in the Dragons’ Learning Den in the W.  W. Hagerty Library (Room 109). Reservations are recommended but walk-ins are welcome.
