Is there a limit to how long I can spend with the therapy dogs?
Not a hard and fast rule for how long you can spend with the therapy dogs, but we would recommend no longer than 5 minutes per dog as there will be many other people wanting to pat them also!

Will there be professional guidance during the meditation sessions?
No, Meditation Mondays are more centred around low lighting, lo-fi ambient music and free snacks – no guided sessions, just a safe space to relax during your exam and assessment preparations.
