Finding a place to study can be very crucial. Some off-campus students prefer to study on campus rather than at home. Some prefer to be near vending machines or places to eat for study breaks. Here’s a working list of places to study!
Starbucks in Northern Neck is open 24/7. Grab a hot drink and spread out on the comfortable couches.
Southside Dining Hall is a great place to grab something to eat and study.
|Monday-Friday||7:00 am to 2:00 am|
|Saturday-Sunday||10:30 am to 2:00 am|
The Johnson Center offers a variety of food options, study rooms, comfortable chairs, couches, and tables every day.
|Sunday-Thursday||7:00 am to 12:00 pm|
|Friday-Saturday||7:00 am to 1:00 am|
Fenwick Library has a wonderful, diverse array of resources (including printing services and computers) and staff, and is a quiet learning environment. The Fenwick Library cafe and study spaces are open 24 hours.
Student Union Building I (SUB I) is a facility with a multitude of various resources, including Registrar’s Office, Counseling and Psychological Services, WAVES, Career Services, and much more. In addition to a vast amount of chairs and couches on all four of its levels and the Patriot’s Study Lounge, you can take a study break every now and again with The Rat, Taco Bell, Chick-fil-A, or Peet’s Coffee on the ground floor. Open seven days a week, 8:00am-10:00pm.
Exploratory Hall has an open area where Exploratory Hall and Planetary Hall connect. The space is science themed with the floor decorated with Bohr models of various atoms and DNA. The best part are the punny “Periodic Tables!” The area is generally quiet and you can also get your caffeine fix since Pete’s Coffee is right by the study area.
The Hub also has chairs and couches all over, with resources including the LEAD Office, Student Involvement, Student Media, and our Off-Campus Student Programs and Services office! You can also enjoy lunch or dinner at Wing Zone.
|Sunday-Thursday||8:00 am to 11:00 pm|
|Friday-Saturday||8:00 am to 1:00 am|
The Collaborative Learning Hub (JC, Room 311) is a multifaceted group study center with a welcoming reception desk with computer access. Individual computers for study groups of one are also available. Don’t forget your Mason ID(s)!

|Friday||10:00 am to 6:00 pm|
Need a cool place to study during finals week? You don’t need an invitation to the Off-Campus 24-hour Study Lounge! Snacks, refreshments, coffee, giveaways, and a quiet space will be provided as we keep the JC open 24 hours for off-campus students only. Invite your friends! During finals week every semester, we set up in George’s Restaurant on the third floor of the Johnson Center.
