Harvard student proposes campus nap room for tired students


At Harvard College, one student has set out to establish a room where students could catch a few winks between classes. Sophomore Yuqi Hou has proposed a campus nap room, complete with individual cushions, which would be divided by curtains to allow privacy. Hou started an online petition to gain support for the cause and after garnering 191 favorable votes, it was passed along to a college dean for review. Hou, who studies applied mathematics, said there is a need for a centrally located nap space because “going back to the dorm to nap is not time-effective.”
