The Gathering Space for Spiritual Well-Being (The Gathering Space)

The Center for Well-Being, Room 103 | i3b@umbc.edu

Opening shortly after The Mosaic in 2006 and formerly named the Interfaith Center, the Gathering Space for Spiritual Well-Being serves as a spirituality-centered space where students and broader community members can gather across the intersection of faith, spirituality, and their other lived experiences. The space prioritizes opportunities to explore holistic well-being as connected to spiritual and religious identities.

It has reservable spaces during the academic year, but is open year-round. This space is mainly used for UMBC students, staff, faculty, and campus partners from all spiritual, religious and faith backgrounds to meet, worship, discuss, and celebrate their individual or collective faith and belief systems. This space was created by past and current UMBC community members who saw the need to honor spiritual and religious diversity by creating spaces for people to pray, worship, and build community on campus regardless of their faith or beliefs. Frequent guests include members of the Muslim Student Association, Hillel Student Organization, Pagan Student Association, Catholic Retrievers, other religion and beliefs groups, and Religious Council members.
