The student government association at the University of Maryland will reportedly consider whether to ask campus officials to set aside a room in the student union for commuting students to catch a nap between classes.

The resolution’s author is fine-tuning his proposal that would call on university officials to finance the “napping station” proposal out of the student facilities fund, The Diamondback student paper reported Monday.

In recent years, other public universities have set apart places for students to catch a few ZZZs between classes.

Fellow Big Ten Conference member the University of Michigan instituted nap rooms in 2014, where students can snooze for up to 30 minutes at a time, The Diamondback reported.

Students at James Madison University in Harrisonburg, Virginia, get a maximum of 40 minutes in the campus “Nap Nook,” USA Today reported in March.
