Need a more secluded spot to study for your midterms? Too hipster for mainstream studying spots like Rutherford or Cameron library? Try out these different places!
Education Centre North, 4-110
The Education Lounge has excellent sky and window lighting, scattered light posts and trees to create the perfect relaxing atmosphere. It includes comfy couches as well as tables.
Agriculture Building (All Floors), Mechanical Engineering Building (All Floors), Education Building (Basement), Chemistry Building (Second Floor), Health Sciences Library, Cameron Library, Rutherford Library, basically most buildings!
Cubbies are great for the secluded studier. The best part is that they are located in lots of places, so studying anywhere that is most convenient for you is possible.
Fourth Floor Chemistry Lounge
Gunning/Lemieux Chemistry Centre, Fourth Floor
Many people might see the second floor studying lounge in Chemistry on their way to and from CCIS, but what they don’t see is that there is actually another one even higher up! Tucked away on the fourth floor of the Chemistry building, this study spot has excellent sky lighting and multiple tables.
Quiet Study Lounges
Basement of ECHA, SUB (Alumni Room and Quiet Room on the main floor)
If you need ABSOLUTE silence to study, this is a great place for you. There is strictly no talking, no cellphones, etc. allowed to distract you here.
(Empty) Lecture Theatres
Basically any building! The best lecture theatres are usually in CCIS, NREF or ETLC
Need room to think? Try studying in a lecture theatre! They are extremely spacious and usually have lots of plugins as well. Of course, only use these when they are open and there are no more classes going on.
