Stressed-out students can now break down in the Cry Closet at the University of Utah

School isn't always fun. In fact, during the weeks of back-to-back midterms and finals it can make you want to scream – or break down and have a good ol' fashioned cry. Enter the Cry Closet, Utah University's therapeutic stand-alone tiny room complete with cute plushies you can cuddle with while you let it all out.

Rules posted on the Cry Closet include:

Knock before entering

Only one person in the closet at a time

Limit your time in the closet to no more than 10 minutes

Turn lights and timer off before leaving

Use #cryclosetuofu if posting on social media

The Cry Closet wasn't built or funded by the university, but instead is a student project. According to Oddity Central:

Created by University of Utah student and visual artist Nemo Miller in woodshop class, the cry closet is lined with a black interior, and features plush stuffed animals inside that students can hug and squeeze as they cry. Whether it's midterm exams, getting dumped via text message or just having a bad day, students can cry in peace, at least for 10 minutes.
