The installation of asleeping pod in the University of Manchester libraryfollows hard on the heels of the University of East Anglia’s sleep room, and no doubt heralds a new era of beanbags, futons, and chaises longue (Russell Group only) popping up on campuses across the UK. But does this mean we are finally taking care of our students’ sleep, or is it an indication that students are now so chronically sleep deprived that universities are having to provide for those who cannot get through the day without forty winks?
