4 Study Spots at Toronto Metropolitan University

It is that time of the year again when students are suddenly finding themselves on campus for longer hours, with the agony of studying and completing never-ending projects. All that is to say, as someone who finds herself on campus for over 10 hours a week, I consider myself somewhat of a library aficionado. There is something really wonderful and even beautiful about libraries, campus buildings and coffee shops that are filled with students. 

Now in my second year, I still have a lot of spots on campus to uncover, but I knew I wanted to find study spaces where I could feel most comfortable and get work done promptly. All things considered, here is a breakdown of my favourite and most underrated study spaces on campus. There is more to our wonderful campus than just the Student Learning Centre!

TMU library

In my opinion, the TMU Library is the most underrated building on campus. In particular, the eighth floor is great because you have quite a few options: Solo seating, study rooms to book and open floor space where you can sit at a large table or a one-seater couch. It has a fantastic study atmosphere and huge windows. If you are looking for extreme silence, the tenth floor will be your best friend as it is strictly a no-talking zone. 

Rogers Communication Centre (RCC) 

Located on 80 Gould St, those who are not a part of The Creative School may be unfamiliar with this spot as you may have never reached this side of campus before. This building has three levels and is so cozy (especially at night), with tables on each floor. Now and then you will find a student from the faculty filming or doing something that catches your attention. Majority of the time, the RCC is a quiet space if you prefer minimal distractions. 

Centre for Urban Innovation

The Centre for Urban Innovation is an underrated study spot on campus that only a select few students have OneCard access to. I couldn’t tell you which students are granted access to the building, but I have had luck with this particular space. The reason I suggest this spot––if you can get on this list––is because it is one of the nicer buildings on campus with its interior and furniture. If you do not have access to the space, I suggest reaching out to the OneCard office. 

Daphne Cockwell Complex (dcc)

Similar to the RCC, DCC is a spot on campus that has multiple study spaces that students can take advantage of. There are tables dispersed throughout the building so you don’t have to worry about coming early to snag a seat.
