When it comes to exam season, having the ideal study spot can make a huge difference. Everyone enjoys learning and studying in different environments, and Queen’s offers a plethora of options for every type of student. Sometimes changing up study locations helps with motivation and productivity, so here are some of the best study spots at Queen’s!
Goodes Hall – Our home
Goodes is the classic study spot for any Commie. The commerce capital has a large variety of study spots within the building, including the social Commons area, a quiet, library-like Goodes Café and of course breakout rooms. There are dozens of breakout rooms throughout the building equipped with TV’s and whiteboards, providing students with opportunities to study, practice a presentation or work through problems on a whiteboard. Overall, it’s a great place to work and you’re always close to fellow commies!
Law Library – Low-key library
This is a great place to visit if you are looking for a quiet place with a lot of working space. The huge wooden tables provide tons of space for textbooks, notebooks and a laptop. Another bonus is that its right across from Goodies!
Common Ground – Social Studying
Common Ground (or CoGro) is the student-run coffee shop on the second and third floor of the arc. If you are looking for a place to hang out and study with friends, this is the place to be!
Douglas Library, Harry Potter Room – This place makes you feel smarter
The Harry Potter room on the third floor of Douglas provides you with quiet booths for focused individual studying…seriously, this place makes you smarter.
CRAVE Coffee House – Chill atmosphere with tasty baked goods
Crave is a great coffee shop down town Kingston, offering a relaxed vibe with outstanding coffee, freshly baked snacks and a chill atmosphere.
Stauffer Fourth Floor, Railing – Best place to creep entire library
Stauff is the biggest library on campus and a classic study spot. After the cardio-heavy trek to the fourth floor, a railing seat is the idea spot to either grind out a paper or procrastinate by creeping the rest of the lib.
Bader Center – It’s dope
The Isabelle Bader center is one of the coolest places on campus. With its incredible view of Lake Ontario and modern design, this is an ideal place to spend the day.
