Best study spots in Boston

Hey girlies! As we are in the midst of midterm season I thought it would be a good idea to share with you some of my favorite study spots in the Boston area. Although I love BC just as much as the next girl, I sometimes get lost in the bubble. I forget about the real world and get too wrapped up in the stresses of college life. So, one way for me to still be productive but calm my mind a little is by going off-campus to some of these study spots. 

 

  1. Fuel America: 152 Chestnut Hill Ave, Brighton, MA 02135

By far my favorite spot. It is so close to campus and they have so many tables to sit and study. On weekends, I always try to get there early morning to grab a good spot with an outlet, a coffee, and some breakfast. The entire front of the coffee shop is a glass window so you are able to look out into the street and it also brings in a lot of natural sunlight. Sometimes when I am studying in one of the BC libraries I forget what time it is because I am never near a window. The next thing I know it’s dark out; this way you don’t feel completely cut-off from the world. 

 

2. Boston Public Library: 700 Boylston St, Boston, MA 02116

From BC it is about a half-hour T ride which is not bad at all! The Boston Public Library is the perfect spot to be able to study in a library but is a change of scenery from the campus libraries. There are so many different floors and types of study spaces available so you have a lot to choose from. Students from all over Boston come to this library. I think it’s cool that people from Boston University, Harvard, and more are studying alongside you. 

 

3. Pavement Coffeehouse: 286 Newbury St, Boston, MA 02115

Pavement to me feels a little more secluded compared to the others. The darker color scheme feels cozy and inviting. I love hiding behind one of my homework assignments as I tune out everyone around me...not to mention they have amazing sandwiches. Pavement is also directly on Newbury, meaning if you ever need a much-needed study break there are so many shops to explore. 

 

4. Museum of Fine Arts: 465 Huntington Ave, Boston, MA 02115

Not your typical study spot but, the Museum of Fine Arts has a couple of little nooks such as hallway benches or their eating areas where you can hide with a good book. Although it may not be ideal to get all your work done, depending on the assignment it may provide you with some artistic inspiration or maybe you could look around for some ideas for your next history paper!

 

5. Tatte Bakery and Cafe: 1352 Boylston St, Boston, MA 02215

Tatte another little coffee shop; it is across the street from the Fenway Target in Boston. It is so bright and beautiful with white and black tile everywhere, it makes me so happy. Tatte has such a clean, aesthetically pleasing look to it, it is a great place to sit and get some work done. They also have amazing dessert pastries and you know no one can resist a good dessert.   

 

Happy studying!
