With midterm season underway, finding spaces to study on campus can be a bit difficult. Typical places such as the Library and the Learning Commons can get very busy and noisy throughout the day. Here is a list of the best study spots I’ve utilized throughout my time at Sheridan. Whether it’s studying for a couple of hours in between classes or reviewing notes for a big exam, these spots have proven to be the perfect atmosphere for getting work done!
- Bruin Coffee House! Some of you may have noticed the lounge next to the Bruin Coffee House. This area consists of tables and sofas; the perfect environment for studying alone or with your friends. Although it can get busy sometimes, the lounge is located behind the Bruin Coffee House so you’re away from the constant flow of people on their way to buy Booster Juice or walking to their next class. Another bonus to studying in this location is its proximity to your next cup of joe!
- The H-Wing! The second and third floors of the H-Wing are great alternatives to studying in the Library. Located next to the washrooms, on both the second and third floors, are a few booths and tables. These areas can attract some foot traffic throughout the day because of its closeness to the washrooms, but they’re still quiet enough for you to get a lot of studying done.
- The third floor of the library! Some of you may have ventured up to the third floor of the library, the designated “quiet floor”, only to find it is not quiet at all. What you may not know (even I didn’t know about this until very recently), is that there is a specific area on the third floor that is the real quiet zone. Along the sides of the third floor are group study rooms. Beyond those rooms are doors on each side that both lead to a designated silent space with individual study cubicles. Whenever you need a study spot away from the hustle and bustle of the campus, the third floor of the library is the place to go!
- Study rooms! If you’ve tried the other three options and you just haven’t been able to get as much studying done as you would have liked, you can book a group study room. This option is for groups of two or more persons. Sheridan allows students to book study rooms for a maximum of two hours in one day. There are study rooms available in the J-Wing as well as the A-Wing. You can book a study room online at https://roombooking.sheridancollege.ca.
Now that you know about the best study spots at the Davis Campus, get studying and ace those exams!
