Sleep is an essential part of student health and wellness - it impacts our mood, memory, metabolism, immune systems and more. Research shows that getting 7 - 9 hours of restful sleep every night can make a world of difference, but sometimes we all need a mid-day pick-me-up. In fact, a quick, 20-minute nap in the middle of the day can help us feel more rested and alert and not impact our night time sleep. 

Relaxation Stations, located in The Rec, offer a safe and relaxing space for students. Each location features nap pods that incorporate an ergonomic design, sleep music and gentle wake sequence - all designed to create an optimal environment for a power nap.
