Calm App is Now Free for UC Merced

Calm Premium Access for UC Merced Students, Staff, and Faculty


Individual and community well-being is essential as we work through the COVID-19 pandemic and its significant impact on our professional and personal lives.

In the pursuit of helping all members of the campus community maintain positive self-care, we have purchased a license that will allow every student, staff, and faculty member to enjoy a free subscription to Calm, the #1 sleep and meditation app. We invite you to explore the Calm features as a resource to practice mindfulness to reduce anxiety and stress, improve sleep and focus, and enhance academic and workplace productivity and performance.

This resource is possible via a partnership between The Office of Information Technology; Chief Diversity Officer Dania Matos; and Associate Professor of Applied Math Suzanne Sindi, with generous support from Interim Chancellor Nathan Brostrom and Executive Vice Chancellor Provost Gregg Camfield.
