Campuses as various as the University of Miami, Savannah College of Art and Design, Washington State University and Wesleyan have installed nap pods, reports The New York Times.
Kotaro Aoki, a philosophy major at Wesleyan, likes that others can’t watch him under the retractable visor. He naps five days a week: “If you want to achieve anything, you are most likely to be in need of some napping during daytime.”
Pods don’t come cheap. Colleges pay about $9,000 for MetroNaps’EnergyPod, with timer and soothing music. (California State University, Northridge, has six.)
