If it is too noisy in your shared apartment or you want to continue working on homework between classes, there are many places on campus where you can focus and study alone or in groups. Students told us about their favorite places to study on campus.
“I especially like to study in MZH Building because there is a lot of daylight and you can eat during your breaks and watch campus life unfold before you.”
“I like to sit in an empty seminar room to read between classes or wrap up work from a seminar. For group work I like to book one of the learning islands in the multimedia study rooms.”
“My favorite place to study is in the GW2 cafeteria. There’s a nice comfortable atmosphere there, and you can study or relax between classes.”
“My favorite study spot at the university is the third floor of the GW2. The wooden tables in front of the seminar rooms are perfect for sitting and chatting with fellow students without disturbing anyone else who is studying.”
“The library is definitely my favorite place to study, since it provides the quiet that I need to concentrate and there isn’t anything there to distract me. I also prefer turning the pages of real books over exclusively looking at a screen.”
“My favorite study spot is the university park. Here, in the comfortable red chairs, I am surrounded by nature and can enjoy the nice breeze while I drink coffee and read for classes.”
