Having gathered sleeping space requirements from ~150 students, UIF Twente decided to set up an area in the University of Twente library, that will be dark, enclosed, private and hygienic. And it will also look futuristic!
The vision for the project is to have sleeping capsules with a booking system so that students can get 15-30 min sleep within a day in this way 'recharging the brain'. Before purchasing expensive capsules, the cohort tests the hypothesis by building a low-tech version of the nap space that includes 'levitating' beds and space dividers.
By providing dedicated nap spaces on university campuses, the SNOOZE project aims to promote physical and mental well-being of students, enhance their academic performance, and their ability to focus.
