The University of Utah erected the closet designed by student artist Nemo Miller in time for exam season. A sign pinned to the door of the closet reads: “A safe place for stressed-out students otherwise known as The Cry Closet.”
“This space is meant to provide a place for students studying for finals to take a short 10-minute break.”
It also detailed some house rules for students using the closet, these included, knocking before entering, only one person in the closet at a time, limiting time in the closet to 10 minutes and turning off the lights when leaving the space.
