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!

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 Rathskeller, Taco Bell, or Chick-fil-A on the ground floor.
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 Peet’s Coffee is right by the study area.
The Hub also has chairs and couches all over, with multiple resources including the LEAD Office, Student Involvement, Student Media, and our very own Off-Campus Student Programs and Services office! You can also enjoy lunch or dinner at Wing Zone.
