Scheduling Guidelines:
  • The Mind Spa is currently closed due to COVID-19. Once re-open, it will be available for scheduling Monday-Friday 8:00am to 4:30pm, with shorter hours during breaks and summer. Appointments can be scheduled for 30 minutes or 1 hour (in order to schedule an hour, please select two consecutive 30 minute spots). 

  • No more than one user at a time will be allowed into the Mind Spa.

  • To allow space for everyone, please schedule no more than one appointment at a time. If you schedule multiple appointments at once, all but the first may be removed by CAPS.

  • Optional orientations to the biofeedback software are availble for new users (except during summer, finals week, and breaks). Orientation hours are noted on the online scheduler, at the bottom of each day they are offered.  If you would like an orientation, schedule your appointment within those hours, and let the receptionist know you would like one when you check in.
