Some of the very, very old women's bathrooms had adjacent "quiet rooms" where women could lie down if they were having problems with "that time of the month", for example. They weren't considered necessary in men's bathrooms for obvious reason. Keep in mind, men were designing the buildings then, so this was a nicety they provided. It's not generally something found in newer buildings.

That makes sense. Most of the buildings on campus are quite old. Thank you.

that's actually not a bad idea if they're kept clean

This is quite true. In those days, these facilities often bore the name "Ladies' Retiring Room," which bypassed the mention of anything thought to be indelicate. We had one of these where I went to college in New York City.

My then-wife once asked the bank manager why there was a bed in the ladies room of the bank, and he told her it's "a fainting couch" and it was just an old Southern tradition that ladies would want to have one in some public washrooms. He said to his knowledge, no female bank customers had ever actually fainted in there.

I used to work at a place that had that. In certain states, I believe it was a law at one time to have them.
