tennis-dudebAchieving maximum benefit from your education is a lot easier with a healthy body and mind. At MUM, students are advised to maintain an ideal daily routine of meditation, academic work, meals, exercise, and rest. Staying on a good daily routine also helps develop the skill of time management — the ability to use time effectively for greater efficiency in action — something all college students need.

To get maximum benefit and growth for both you and your fellow students, we suggest the following schedule:

Practice of the Transcendental Meditation® or TM-Sidhi® program

Before breakfast, in a group or on your own.


  • 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m., Monday through Saturday
  • 11:00 a.m. to 1:30 a.m., Sunday brunch

Food300Classes / Lunch / Afternoon TM or TM-Sidhi Program

  • Attendance at all classes is required. With the block system, you need to be there every day or you will get behind. (Note: Each nonstandard program has its own class schedule.)
  • Classes are generally from 10:00 a.m. to 3:15 p.m., Monday through Friday, with an hour break for lunch, and 10:00 a.m. to 12 noon on Saturday.

If you have started the TM program but have not yet taken the TM-Sidhi program we make it easy for you by doing a 20-minute group meditation in the classroom beginning at 2:50 p.m., with class ending at 3:15 p.m.

Students who have learned the TM-Sidhi program usually leave class at 2:45 p.m. in order to do an early afternoon group TM and TM-Sidhi program in the student program halls, or later in the afternoon in the Golden Domes.

After class

It’s a good time to exercise (check out our Fit for Life program). Some students also use this time for work-study, homework, or socializing.


6:30 p.m. – 7:45 p.m.


Evening Study Hours

7:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.

Early to Bed

Rest is the basis of activity. Therefore, we strongly encourage you to be in bed by 10:00 p.m. Typical daily homework loads can be comfortably completed by this time.

Quiet times in the residence halls: 9:30 p.m. – 9:30 a.m.

At times when people are usually sleeping, we ask that residence hall students discontinue talking loudly, playing music in their room, and talking in the hallways. These times are from 9:30 p.m. to 9:30 a.m. every day. At other times, please be respectful of others who may be studying, especially during afternoon and evening hours.

Visiting Hours

To ensure that you can easily maintain a good daily routine, visitors are asked to leave the residence halls by 9:30 p.m. in the evening. Guests also should not enter the buildings before 9:30 a.m. Note: Visiting hours and locations for visits by opposite gender guests are posted in the residence halls.

Exercise and Fitness

Undergraduate students are required to participate in four hours of physical activity per week and complete a fitness assessment every semester. We also offer recreation and exercise classes in a variety of activities and sports, with class times to meet most schedules. The Recreation Center and the outdoor swimming pool are open to students at no charge. You can contact the Department of Exercise and Sport Science for a booklet explaining all recreation and exercise programs, or check out the Rec Center website.
