Top 5 places to study for finals

Undergraduate | Dec 06, 2016 |

It’s that time of year again. Christmas trees are going up, holiday cheer is spreading, and, of course, finals are closing in.

During preparation for visiting family and ringing in the new year, it can be difficult to concentrate on taking finals, much less studying for them. Here’s a list of places where Lincoln Center students can get some work done and prepare to bring home that ‘A.’


1. The Garden Lounge

If you’ve been in the new 140 West 62nd Street building, you’ve probably seen the seating area on the garden level, full of tables and comfortable chairs. This place is a good, calm place to look over notes and in striking distance of several sources of snacks.

2. The Rock Garden

This study spot isn’t for everyone, for an obvious reason: It’s outdoors. Located just outside the McMahon lobby, this area is typically pretty empty in colder weather, making it a good place to avoid distractions.

Never underestimate study lounges. These areas make the perfect quiet place to unwind and prepare for finals. Best of all, they’re open late for last-minute cramming.

4. Reserve Rooms in 140

Did you know meeting rooms in the 140 West 62nd Street building can be reserved? Stop by Room 217 to book a space for you and your study group. It takes no time at all, and you’ll thank yourself later for thinking ahead.

Also located in the 140 West 62nd Street building, the new and improved Quinn Library is spectacular. It has an open lounge on the first floor, but if you need absolute silence to focus, head up to the third floor. This area is a quiet zone with private booths for isolated study time.
