University of Maryland Students Vote to Install $20,000 Napping Stations in Library

The napping pods, which rose to public awareness after installations in Silicon Valley offices, were approved by the University of Maryland student government last week. The measure to install the napping pods passed overwhelmingly, with a 28-2 vote with four abstentions.

The pods are equipped with a timer, a privacy visor, storage space, a music player, and a light that mimics a sunrise.
