CALGARY – Those all-nighters before exams can certainly take their toll, but now there’s a new place to find some relief at the University of Calgary.
The Students Union is opening up a “Nap Room” for a trial run, after a recent survey showed almost half of U of C students feel they aren’t getting enough sleep.
The room features soft mats and pillows, dim lighting and a soothing soundtrack of new age music and waves crashing on a beach.
Students got a preview of the facility Tuesday, and said it’s a welcome addition to the campus.
“It’s a ruckus out there, but in here it’s nice and quiet,” said Gavin McCormack. “You’re just kind of like in your own world, chilling out.”
“I feel really revived and like I could do some work now,” added Darrien Thompson “So it’s definitely a nice feeling.”
The “Nap Room” will be open next week, and depending on response it may become a permanent feature at the U of C.
