15-0722 v2.X Clarification on Sleeping Areas


The Potomac Watershed Study Center: Moss Building contains sleeping pods for visiting students and chaperones to spend the night. The pods will not be used for any activities other than the storage of the student’s and chaperone’s belongs and of course sleeping. We would like clarification if sleeping areas are considered “Regularly Occupied Spaces” by the Institute?

Our thoughts are they would not be consider regularly occupied and they do not “frequently require occupants to spend extended periods of time working, studying, or performing similar activities in the space” per the definition in the Health & Happiness Handbook. Please let us know your thoughts.


Sleeping pods, like bedrooms, are considered regularly occupied spaces.
