Best Study Spots in the Union

With finals quickly approaching, you might be seeking out some new study locations to prepare for this seemingly endless week of exams, essays, projects, and tests. So to help you out, here’s a must-know guide for the best spots in the Union to facilitate your finals week needs!

Fourth Floor:
Did you know that there’s a fourth floor of the Union? Well, if you didn’t know, you do now! There are plenty of comfortable seating options sprawled across the floor, perfect for your study needs. Plus, if you ever need a study break, you can take a breather in the Meditation Room nearby.

Also located on the fourth floor is the beautiful rooftop garden! With views overlooking the library mall and the McConnell clock tower, you’re sure to feel studious while working up there! Take advantage of the perfect fresh fall air, grab a seat, and crack open your textbook.

Student Organization Space:
Located on the third floor, the Student Organization Space is designed for, you guessed it, student organizations to meet. However, this is also an amazing open space to study, with plenty of seating, outlets, and monitors you can connect to. There’s even a fireplace in the back corner for peak coziness!

Campus Chat:
Hidden behind the Campus Chat food court is a vast seating area. If you’re looking for a space to hold a study group, this will be your spot! There are long tables to seat bigger groups, as well as smaller comfy couches to look out the window while typing that final essay.

If you’re anything like me and need background noise to get things done, look no further than Starbucks! From the smell of coffee to the dark wood and big windows, this is the perfect place to live out your cozy “lo-fi hip-hop beats to relax/study to” dreams. Plus, you can sip on a delicious drink while hitting the books!
