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 Prevention Plan. What is 1440 Multiversity doing to address Coronavirus concerns?
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. California law, like federal law, doesn't require that emotional support animals or family pets be allowed in public places.
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.

Is 1440 an appropriate place for me if I am not an experienced retreat goer?
Is 1440 an appropriate place for me if I am not an experienced retreat goer? 1440 Multiversity is a place where all are welcome unbound by our differences. If you have never attended a retreat or program before, do not be discouraged. Read the program description carefully and follow your heart in terms of desire to learn. The majority of our guests book Rest & Renewal stay packages - which we highly recommend if you have never been to 1440 before - as a way to orient you to our offerings. 1440 is like a human charging station that stimulates one's curiosity, enhances self-awareness and allows guests to be more fully alive so they leave with more energy than they arrive with. We plug in all of our devices to recharge them and stays at 1440 are a way to re-energize ourselves. Is 1440 an appropriate place for me if I am not an experienced retreat goer?
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. There are no day passes issued and visitors are not allowed on campus due to the operating license as a 501(c)(3) which restricts campus attendance to paid registered guests only - 1440 cannot 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. Can a friend or family member stop by to visit me while I am at a program?
