Study Space Locations Revealed!

September 23, 2014  |   Found in Advocacy // Student Life

The Taylor Family Digital Library (TFDL) is a prime location on campus for studying, working on assignments, or doing group work. Seating is varied to suit your needs, plugins are widely available and it’s bright and airy, making it an ideal place to spend a few hours without straining your eyes or back. The TFDL now also offers longer hours and there are plenty of staff members who are happy to help you find the resources you need for every kind of task.

But, do you ever head to your favourite study spot at the library only to find it’s not available? Or, you’re looking for a quiet corner to start working on that paper you’ve been avoiding and the only seats left are in a louder area? Although finding good study space is a challenge for every student, the good news is there are lots of areas around campus to use – you just have to know where to look!

Recently a group of students worked with the SU to scope out the best locations around the main campus, from quiet cubicles, to larger collaborative spaces. Next time you need a place to go instead of the library, check out one of these top 20, student-approved and recommended spots:
