5 Best places to sleep on campus

by Kayzia Boilard

Here at IGNITE, we get that busy schedules and daunting calendars full of upcoming due dates can take a toll.

Getting your sleep is important, especially for college and university students. So we’ve decided to come up with a list of places where Humber and Guelph-Humber students can get some rest and feel their best!


North campus Sleep Lounge

Let’s start with the obvious. We don’t mean to brag, but IGNITE’s Sleep Lounge offers a super cozy in-school sleeping location. At North campus, the Sleep Lounge is in KX208 (the fireplace room). We’ve created a quiet, clean, and dark environment for the perfect afternoon nap that you crave. Just bring your student ID and you’re good to go!

Lakeshore campus Sleep Lounge

That’s right, IGNITE provides a Sleep Lounge at both the North and Lakeshore campuses. To use the Sleep Lounge, sign up in the Games Room (K Basement) and head to KB106 for a much needed nap that will surely make any day better!

At the back of your most boring class

Let’s be real, sometimes class isn’t exactly the most exciting place to be, and if you’re feeling a little tired your eyes might start getting heavy really quickly. There’s nothing wrong with a little in-class power nap, as long as you’re sitting towards the back to avoid being rude. We’re not encouraging you to sleep in class – but we know that sometimes it’s going to happen. Some people can’t resist the allure of a class nap.

Good food makes people sleepy. It’s a fact. We’ve all been there, you’ve had a long day and you sit down for a snack only to find yourself slowly leaning into your meal and waking up with your face on the table 15 minutes later. You are not alone, and you’ve definitely seen others do it in the cafeteria.

When it comes to things that make students sleepy, we know that nothing compares to studying. Breaking up your studying with mini naps in order to actually retain information is simply necessary sometimes. Don’t feel bad about giving your brain a little break by nodding off at the library. Just don’t start bringing a pillow and blanket.

All jokes aside – make sure you try to get enough sleep every night as it’s important for your health and overall well-being. We know midterms and assignments can mess with sleep schedules, but getting your rest will be more than helpful for achieving good grades.

After all, that’s why we introduced our Sleep Lounge in the first place. Why not use those long breaks in between classes to catch up on some much needed rest?
