BCIT Nap Room

The BCIT Student Association in collaboration with BCIT Recreation Services are excited to announce that they are launching a nap room on campus beginning January 11th, 2016. This initiative was created in an effort to contribute to our Health & Wellness programming. A short  30—40 minute nap can significantly improve mental health and focus.

  • Ten (10) beds
  • Fifty (50) nap slots available per day
