For those students too weary-eyed to go on, Indiana University is proud to announce the launch of innovative new nap pods on the Bloomington and IUPUI campuses. The nap pods, created by renowned sleepologists at the Daydream Institute in Sleepy Hollow, New York, come in a soothing Dunn Meadow or Taylor Courtyard green.
Located in popular spots like the Herman B Wells Library and the Campus Center, each nap pod comes equipped with an aromatherapy unit that emits a unique, relaxing scent for each campus: “Lavender Squirrel” for Bloomington and “Minty Jaguar” for IUPUI. An iPad with soothing music is also in each nap pod, as is a comfy chair and IU fleece blanket.
In addition, at select times, nap pods will offer cats for additional snuggle support, who can be called to the pod at the push of a button.
The nap pods are just one more way IU is fulfilling its promise to ensuring student success.
