Is there somewhere in the library where I can rest or have a quick nap?


  • UCC Library has an Energy Pod on Q+3 near the Multimedia area. 
  • It is a reclining chair where you can either relax or nap for up to 20 minutes.  You do not need to book it, you can use it if it is unoccupied.
  • A short nap can refresh you and increase alertness and productivity*.
  • The control panel is on the inside of the arm of the chair.
  • Pull around the privacy visor to block out distractions.
  • Plug in headphones to listen to music.
  • There are storage areas beside the seat inside the pod where you can store your belongings.
  • The red and green status lights at the back show if the unit is free (green light) and how long it will be occupied (red light flashing).
