    What is 1440 Multiversity doing to address Coronavirus concerns?
    The health, security, safety and well-being of guests and employees are 1440 Multiversity campus priorities. 1440 closely follows alerts and information disseminated by the CDC, WHO and the Department of State each day, and continually amends safety protocol in keeping with state mandates and recommendations. For the detailed steps that 1440 takes to protect all on campus, please review the Campus Health & Safety Plan. What is 1440 Multiversity doing to address Coronavirus concerns?
  • Can I bring my pet or service animal to 1440?

    Can I bring my pet or service animal to 1440?
    • 1440 follows California law which only allows persons with disabilities to bring trained service dogs and psychiatric service dogs to campus. The protections discussed previously do not apply to emotional support animals or personal pets. California law, like federal law, does not require that emotional support animals or family pets be allowed in public places therefore 1440 only allows trained pets on campus to accommodate guests with disabilities   
    • Individuals who have service animals are not exempt from and must comply with local city animal control and public health requirements, so please be sure your service animal meets all vaccination requirements and is properly registered and licensed. 
    • In California, an assistive animal means a trained animal that is necessary as a reasonable accommodation for a person with a disability and includes guide dogs, signal dogs, service dogs and psychiatric service dogs. Only a dog that is trained to recognize and respond to an individual's disability-related need for assistance can be considered a service dog.
    • California law allows business owners to require that an assistive animal be (i) free from offensive odors and displays appropriate habits (for example, is potty-trained) and (ii) does not engage in behavior that endangers the health or safety of the individual with a disability or others around them. 
    • Since the ADA does not require service animals to wear a vest, ID tag or specific harness, it may not be obvious to the 1440 staff that your dog is a service animal. In such cases, we have the legal right to ask you the following two specific questions in support of your well-being:
      • Is the dog a service animal required because of a disability?
      • What work or task has the dog been trained to perform?
    • As the animal handler, you are required to be in control of your service animal at all times. You are also responsible for caring for and supervising the service animal, which includes toileting; feeding; and grooming and veterinary care. 1440 is not obligated to supervise or otherwise care for any service animal.
    • The service animal must be harnessed, leashed or tethered while in public places unless these devices interfere with the service animal's work or the person's disability prevents use of these devices.
    • Seating, food and drink are provided for customer use only. The ADA gives a person with a disability the right to be accompanied by his or her service animal but 1440 is not required to, nor does it allow, a service animal to sit or be fed at the table.
    • While 1440 does not charge guests any sort of fee for housing your service dog or cleaning its hair and dander, we will assess and charge you for any damage to the room or campus your service animal may cause as we would any other guest.

    Can a friend or family member stop by to visit me while I am at a program?

    Can a friend or family member stop by to visit me while I am at a program?

    Unfortunately not. Because 1440 must follow established exemption guidelines, we cannot allow visitors to campus, nor can we sell or offer services to anyone that is not a registered attendee. Out of the respect and privacy of those who are immersed in learning, we require all guests to register at the Lodge upon arrival and only such guests are allowed on campus. 1440 strictly abides by and enforces criminal trespass laws as outlined in California Penal Code 602 PC which can lead to penalties of up to six (6) months in county jail and/or a fine up to $1,000.00 if you are caught trespassing. If you wish to meet someone who is not registered, you must do so at a location off-campus.

    Guests must visibly display their registration badges at all times, and must present their badge to staff before being served or granted access to the private grounds of 1440. If we cannot clearly see your badge, you will be asked to display it, so please wear your badge at all times. The badge is also helpful to program organizers from a safety and security standpoint to ensure no uninvited guests are present at your private events. 1440 strictly abides by this policy and enforces criminal trespass laws as outlined in California Penal Code 602 PC which can lead to penalties of up to six (6) months in county jail and/or a fine up to $1,000.00.

    What are the main differences between 1440 Multiversity and a hotel?
    • 1440 Multiversity is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit learning destination that does philanthropic work based on five learning pillars. Unlike hotels and resorts which operate for profit, all proceeds from 1440 are reinvested into our advocacy work and funds are used for scholarships, grants and to provide financial support to community-building efforts. 
    • Guests of 1440 must be pre-registered to attend some form of educational event or meeting where mission-aligned learning is planned - our exempt status prohibits 1440 from providing any services to anyone who is not a registered guest. Hotels are widely open to the general public and can be patronized by overnight guests and non-guests. 
    • 1440 offers a minimalist approach to design and function and guests of 1440 are encouraged to spend most of their time outside of their guestroom immersed in scheduled learning classes and engaged in designed community building activities - there are no minibars, televisions, phones, coffee makers or room service available in accommodations at 1440. Hotels offer more of the aforementioned comforts and guests are not required to attend classes or engage in learning activities as a condition of their stay. Traditional resort offerings such as valet parking, bell and concierge services are not offered at 1440.
    • There are no a la carte restaurants or tableside service at 1440. All guests participate in community dining at Kitchen Table where they all enjoy the same plant-based menu items (which change daily) during pre-defined meal service hours.  
    • Guests are encouraged to bring their own refillable water bottles and utilize the complimentary filtered water-filling stations in each building around campus as 1440 does not sell pre-packaged water bottles.
    • Guests of 1440 respect a 10:00 p.m. lights-out and quiet time curfew to afford all guests a good night's rest to optimize the learning experience - all public campus facilities are typically closed at this time.
    • All guests are provided with a daily schedule that includes Signature Classes for movement and contemplative practices facilitated by 1440 teachers at least three times a day.
    • Registered guests at 1440 are not allowed to invite others to visit or meet them at 1440 since the campus is private and closed to all non-registered guests. There are local restaurants and bars nearby should guests wish to meet a friend off-campus.

    Is the 1440 campus ADA accessible?
    • Yes. 1440 is ADA compliant to include, but not limited to, designated ADA room accommodations, accessible ramps, transportation assistance and communication devices. The ADA requires that accessible rooms be "dispersed among the various classes of guest rooms" to provide people with disabilities "choices of types of guest rooms, number of beds, and other amenities comparable to the choices provided to other guests." 
    • Since 1440 is the site of a former college, it is important to note that the campus is situated on hilly terrain, and there is not a continuous convenient accessible pathway between points on campus; however, it is accessible.
    • To ensure access between buildings that do not have an accessible path between them, we offer an accessible shuttle. This shuttle is provided to transport guests from parking areas to accessible pathways leading to campus buildings and to transport guests between accessible pathways so that they can enter each building. For additional questions about accessibility and to coordinate your transportation while on campus, please contact us at least two weeks in advance of your arrival at (844) 544-1440 or reservations@1440.org

Unlike a hotel that operates for profit, all proceeds collected by 1440 are re-invested back into the mission work of the organization through a scholarship and grant program to aid those in need. 1440 Multiversity also believes in community building and advocacy work, so a portion of all packages sold support programs such as Healing Our Healthcare Heroes and feeding food-insecure families in our local community. Why is 1440 a nonprofit?
  • Do you partner with travel agencies, meeting planners and other commission-based business models?

    Do you partner with travel agencies, meeting planners and other commission-based business models?

    Do you partner with travel agencies, meeting planners and other commission-based business models?
    As a nonprofit organization, 1440 may only serve those who are registered to learn. Exemption mandates restrict 1440 from engaging in any commission-based business models due to our 501(c)(3) status. 1440 welcomes support from any organization willing to contribute to our mission work; however, we do not engage in business transactions structured via commission-based payments. Any organization that engages or works with a third-party intermediary must pay for those services directly - 1440 cannot distribute such payments.

    Do my local attendees have the option to drive in during my program instead of spending the night?

    Do my local attendees have the option to drive in during my program instead of spending the night?
    Yes. 1440 learning packages are designed to be immersive experiences which means they include overnight accommodations. However, in special cases there is flexibility for some of your attendees to commute to and from your program provided they are registered as "Day Delegates." Day Delegates are provided with a slightly discounted package price; however, there is no option to do so by meal period and all Day Delegates must attend your full program, pay for all meals and participate in all planned learning experiences - the number of Day Delegates is typically restricted to no more than 10 percent of your total expected attendance.

    1440 does not publish or list for-profit private events on our public website. However, private landing pages may be created for your event (for a fee) provided enough time to consult and complete the work is appropriate. Groups or private events that contract for overnight accommodations will be provided with a private booking link for a more seamless reservation process. In such cases, a group attendee would enter an exclusive code created for the group by 1440 which will take them to a booking page specific to your group. This private code will be available and active up to 30 days prior to your group arrival before being deactivated. How do I get my private event listed on the 1440.org website?
  • Is there a free-standing restaurant on the campus for a la carte dining?

    Is there a free-standing restaurant on the campus for a la carte dining?

    Is there a free-standing restaurant on the campus for a la carte dining?

    No. 1440 is an all-inclusive campus which means all meals are included and served at Kitchen Table - the communal dining room and culinary heart of our campus. There is not a free-standing a la carte dining option on campus, so please be mindful that we serve fresh organic plant-forward food geared towards a healthy integrated lifestyle with a "food as medicine" approach to nutrition. You will find food here to be a mainly vegetable-based diet with limited meat and fish protein accoutrements. All guests enjoy the same menu for each meal period and while you can elect to omit the meat or fish from your entrée in lieu of a vegetable protein, there are no other menu substitutions.

    Common Grounds, the campus café and break area, offers limited grab-and-go snacks and specialty beverages throughout the day, but is not a full-service restaurant. All items in the cafe must be purchased separately - including beer and wine which must be purchased from and served by 1440 staff regardless of where it is offered on campus.

    In compliance with the California Department of Public Health guidelines, 1440 does not permit guests to bring or consume outside food or beverage in any public locations on campus.

    1440 is a heavily wooded location and strongly advises against bringing any food into your guest room to avoid insects or animals that it might attract.

    1440 does not issue meal credits if you miss a meal or choose to not dine in Kitchen Table. It is not uncommon for guests to explore Scotts Valley or the surrounding Santa Cruz area when they have some free time in their program agenda; however, if you do, we recommend you return in time for your meals. The culinary team orders and prepares meals according to the daily registration count from pre-arrival to guest departure.

    Am I allowed to bring food onto campus?

    While 1440 does prohibit outside food or beverage, if you must consume specialty items for medical purposes, you must consume them only in the comfort of your guest room - due to health and safety mandates established by the California Department of Public Health, you may not bring outside food or beverages into public areas, nor may any such items be stored in our kitchens

    1440 offers dining for all guests at Kitchen Table and does not operate as a free-standing restaurant. We source, prepare and serve local and organic vegetables; organic and local rice; grains; legumes; lightly seasoned proteins; and tofu. The vast majority of our food is vegan- and vegetarian-friendly. Ingredients for each dish are pre-determined and three fresh, seasonal, well-rounded meals are plated to order in front of you so you may determine what you prefer on your plate. The culinary team is not able to prepare specialty items to meet individual requests, nor can we risk exposure to certain foods since ingredients for each meal are thoughtfully selected in advance and the dining room is shared by all campus guests. For the health and safety of all guests in compliance with the California Department of Public Health, no outside food or beverages are allowed in any public spaces.

    Is alcohol allowed and served on campus?

    1440 possesses a restricted license with the State of California Alcoholic Beverage Control that allows us to sell beer and wine only. The license strictly prohibits all other alcoholic beverages or spirits from being sold or consumed anywhere on campus which includes anything that you purchased elsewhere and transported onto the campus.   

    1440 reserves the right to confiscate or ask you to discard any alcohol that was not sold by 1440. In extreme cases, anyone who violates these rules may be asked to permanently leave the campus. 

    1440 requires proper identification (photo ID) of any person of questionable age and will refuse alcoholic beverage service if either the person is under-age or when proper identification cannot be produced.   

    1440 may also refuse alcoholic beverage service to any person who, in 1440's judgment, appears to be intoxicated or to persons under the state-mandated age limit that are being served alcohol by any non-campus employee. If any of these mandates are broken, 1440 reserves the right to immediately suspend the sale of all beer and wine to all participants of the group or private event to ensure everyone's safety.

    1440 does not offer an airport shuttle service, but strongly encourages guests to use rideshare services, carpool or hire a taxi. Given the immersive and all-inclusive nature of our on-campus experience, you do not need a car during your time with us. If you do choose to drive, onsite parking at 1440 Multiversity is available on a first-come basis. On departure day, rideshare can be difficult to source so we recommend you afford plenty of time for your return to the airport as beach traffic can create time delays or limit access to rideshare opportunities.

  • What is mindfulness?

    What is mindfulness?

    What is mindfulness?

    Mindfulness is the basic human ability to be fully present - a sense of awareness of where we are, and what we're doing in the present moment while not overly reactive or overwhelmed by what's going on around us. Whenever you bring awareness to what you are directly experiencing via your senses, or to your state of mind via your thoughts and emotions, you are being mindful. Growing research shows that when you train your brain to be mindful, you are transforming the physical structure of your brain and doing so can be good for your overall health and wellbeing.

    Am I allowed to smoke on campus?
    1440 Multiversity imposes a strict non-smoking, non-vaping, tobacco-free and cannabis-free policy throughout the campus. 1440 complies with California's Statewide Smoke-Free Air Law, long leading the way in adopting strong and innovative smoke-free air laws that protect people from secondhand smoke exposure. In keeping with the vision of creating hope for living well, 1440 Multiversity recognizes its obligation to create a healthy environment for all; therefore, the implementation of a no tobacco/vaping/cannabis and smoke-free campus policy for visitors and team members allows everyone to pursue their work and educational goals. The policy includes the prohibition of smoking cigarettes, vaping pens, pipes, cigars and other tobacco products as well as any other substance. The use of cannabis (including edibles) and smokeless tobacco products (i.e., chewing tobacco, snuff, etc.) and the use of electronic smoking devices (e.g., vape pens and e-cigarettes) are also prohibited. To mitigate the risk of fire or any related damage caused by fire, no open flame is allowed anywhere on campus, including in vehicles and parking areas.

  • What kind of food does Kitchen Table serve?

    What kind of food does Kitchen Table serve?

    What kind of food does Kitchen Table serve?

    The menu offerings at 1440 Multiversity were established with the notion that nutrition is a critical component for physical and emotional health and healing - with that in mind, the 1440 Multiversity culinary team operates mindfully and with a "Food As Medicine" approach, sourcing its ingredients exclusively from local growers. 1440 Multiversity uses a plant-based approach in its culinary offerings with the intention that every guest will enjoy a similar meal regardless of individual eating habits. Some other important dining facts include:

    • All meals at 1440 are mindfully prepared using whole organic ingredients and hand-plated with care by the chefs in Kitchen Table, a communal dining space that fosters social interaction and engagement in conversations that matter.
    • These meals are based on nutrient-dense whole foods as opposed to pre-packed and processed items; this "Food As Medicine" approach increases your metabolism leaving you feeling satisfied, energized and focused, not tired and bloated as is the case with many processed foods.
    • 1440 sources local and organic produce, rice and grains and offers gluten-free alternatives at every meal.
    • When bread is served, loaves are typically baked using grains milled on campus.
    • 1440 has established deep roots in the community and partners with 20-30 local farms - often procuring produce from growers and ranchers at farmers markets to supplement the produce, herbs and flowers grown on the 1440 campus in Joanie's Garden.
    • All other ingredients, such as the sustainable healthy animal proteins that 1440 procures - within a 300-mile radius of campus including fish from Monterey Bay - are raised in their natural environments that produce more nutrient-rich and less inflammatory foods than animals raised using modern industrialized animal production.
    • Many restaurants and commercial kitchens procure their ingredients from national distributors; at 1440 Multiversity, the culinary team and campus guests served take comfort in both seeing and knowing where ingredients originate from so every meal supports local farmers and producers.
    • These home-based partnerships allow 1440 access to freshest seasonal ingredients while supporting, enhancing and strengthening the supply chain across the County of Santa Cruz which contributes to the local economic health of our community.

    Due to our business demands we are unfortunately not able to accommodate a private group signature class or single meal for those not staying overnight. 1440 has established a waiting list for private mission-aligned group events, and because 1440 Multiversity is a nonprofit philanthropic campus, all guests must be participating in a mission-aligned learning activity or program that has been thoroughly reviewed by our 1440 Programming department. We encourage visitors who are interested in exploring our Signature Classes and dining opportunities to visit our Events Calendar at 1440.org/events, which lists upcoming Community Learning Events that often involve a class or meal component.  Can I book one Signature Class/one meal only for my company?
