Designated Nap Zone on campus! The Underground in the Kirby Student Center will be a designated nap zone on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, 2-3pm. It will be available for use as usual for studying, etc, but signs will be posted honoring a quieter space during those days and times. This program is a collaboration of the Student Health Advisory Committee, UMD Health Services, and the Kirby Student Center. The nap zone was inspired by the results of a needs assessment on student sleep habits and barriers.
