EMPORIA, Kan. (AP) – Emporia State University students who are too exhausted to get home can now find beds on campus.
The university is installing two sleeping pods designed by a San Diego-based company. The soundproof rooms are slightly wider than a twin bed, with a nightstand and a charging station. Curtains and window blinds provide privacy.
University spokeswoman Gwen Larson said students often are seen napping in public places such as chairs or with their head on a table. She says the sleep pods are safer places for a better sleep.
One pod was installed recently in the campus library and another will be installed at Memorial Union.
The Kansas City Star reports students stationed near each pod will check students in and ensure that only one student at a time is using the sleeping pod.
