Five unique spots to study on the U of C campus

By Jill Girgulis, January 19 2016 —

Now that the new semester is underway, study spaces fill up at an alarming rate. Unless you want to sit on an uncomfortable wicker cube for eight hours, the TFDL is no use. And the few familiar study spaces around campus fill up faster than the Tim Horton’s line at 9:00 a.m. To help you find the perfect place to finish that 2,500-word paper or prep for that chem midterm, we’ve compiled a list of new study spots for you to try.

Earth Sciences bathroom: If you need a little ambient noise, the small bench near the sinks in the first-floor Earth Sciences washrooms is the place for you. There’s little difference between the soothing sounds of waves crashing against a shore and the frantic flushing of toilets, right?

Arts Parkade roof: Accessible by seven flights of stairs, the barren concrete is the ideal setting for harnessing your creative spirit. The cold, critical and unyielding environment will probably improve your philosophy test scores.

Olympic Oval: Sub-zero temperatures aside, studying in close proximity to the World’s Fastest Ice® will cause you to develop the World’s Fastest Scantron Bubbling® abilities.

EEEL staircase: No, not that staircase. Try studying on the EEEL staircase’s less glamorous cousin, tucked away in a dark corner of the building. We guarantee your chemistry model kit won’t get stepped on because literally zero people use these stairs.

Your room in residence: Just kidding — who studies in rez?
