One of the hardest parts of the semester is finding when and where to study. Spending too much time in bed doing school work can make what should be the most relaxing spot in your house or dorm feel stressful. 

Here are some of my favorite study spots on Michigan State campus to get you out of the house and ready to focus.

The MSU Libraries

The library is a classic study spot and my personal go-to, MSU’s library truly has it all. With different areas dedicated to collaborative work and silent studying, there is a place for you to go regardless of what kind of study environment you need. The library also has a Sparty Refresh that offers fresh coffee, snacks and ready-to-go meals. 

Wells Hall

Wells Hall is one of my favorite study spots because of its beautiful location and the Starbucks located in the B Wing. Wells is located in the center of campus, right near the Red Cedar and is surrounded by MSU’s beautiful greenery. When the weather is nice, you can study outside in lawn chairs or on the Starbucks patio. There are also several couches, chairs and counters throughout the hallways where you can sit and get to work. Not to mention, the Starbucks that is open from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. every weekday. It even accepts Combo X Changes!

Residential Lounges

Finally, all residence halls have lounges on the first floor that serve as amazing study spots. If you need a quiet environment, these might not be your first choice as the foot traffic of the dorms can create a bit of noise, but they feature comfortable couches and are located all throughout campus. For students living in residential halls, you don’t even have to leave the building. Most resident halls also have vending machines for a quick snack or drink, and several lounges have desktop computers that students can access.

No matter how you focus best, there is a place for you to study on campus. First and foremost, take the time to explore! There are endless hidden spots in every building perfect for studying.
