It’s my college and I’ll cry if I want to.
It’s a stressful time for third level students as exam time approaches.
But instead of having a weep in the college toilets, you could soon be able to let it all out in a ‘cry closet’.
A university in the US has installed a ‘safe place’ for stressed-out students.
The free-standing closet in the University of Utah has been designed and built by artist and student Nemo Miller.
It has a black interior and there’s stuffed animals inside.
A sign on the closet door reads: “This space is meant to provide a place for students studying for finals to take a short 10-minute break.”
And there are rules listed: Knock before entering, only one person inside at a time, limit time inside to 10 minutes and turn the lights out before leaving.

The majority of people have been reacting positively to the project, with many saying they’d love to have a designated space to sob.
Yooooo!! I’m THE Cry Closet Creator ™️. I’m so stoked that the response has been so incredible!!
