Napping pods are coming to the University of Arizona, just in time for finals.

The HOHM pods will be available in the student union from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. each day starting Dec. 3. UA will provide each student with two hours of free naps per month. Naps can range from 30 minutes to four hours.

Each napping pod is 43.5 square-feet and has a twin-sized bed, a privacy and sound-blocking curtain, charging stations and a tablet to control reservations.

Naps can be booked through the HOHM website. When booked, students go to the student union, check in and recharge. HOHM team members will be there to help students with check-in and check-out, to ensure single occupancy and to clean rooms and change sheets after each nap.

HOHM was founded by Nik Woods. Woods is a former Wildcat.
