There is Now a University With a ‘Cry Closet’ for Stressed-Out Students

The University of Utah has apparently hatched an exciting new plan to help students deal with the dark side of higher education—by letting a student install a “cry closet” in the campus library.

Thanks to the new closet, which was dreamed up by University of Utah student and visual artist Nemo Miller, college kids can relieve their stress, one private sob at a time. Buried in homework and feeling down? Dumped via text while studying for midterms? Just plop out a few tears in private and get back to work!

From the look of some photos on Twitter, the closet actually looks pretty cozy inside, outfitted with padded walls and floor and even a few stuffed animals, in case someone wants to drown a toy in tears.

Sure, the cry closet is basically an art installation, with the University of Utah acknowledging that the whole thing is pretty tongue-in-cheek, to begin with, but it’s still found its share of people whining about weak-ass millennials and how they need to “toughen up.”

But let’s be real, here: Someday—maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow—you might find yourself in a public space with that familiar lump in your throat and an imminent flood of tears, and say, “Damn, wish I had a small box to go sob inside for ten minutes or whatever.” The world is currently full of things to cry about, so maybe.
