They are accessed via a mobile app, by smart phone using a QR code on the side of the pod, or by contacting Dean of Students Heidi Olson (320.222.5209 or [email protected]) for a code to enter the pod.
The inside has two bench seats, a drop-down medical-grade shelf/table, a fixed shelf, a mirror, coat/back pack/purse hooks, power, USB charging plug-ins, occupancy-activated lighting, ceiling fans and vents for clean air quality, etc. They are on the regular cleaning schedule.
