Top 5 Study Spots
By: Anna Gedevani - Carolina Housing Marketing Intern 2021-2022
As midterm season approaches, I compiled a list of some of my favorite study spots on campus! I highly recommend exploring campus and trying out a bunch of different locations to find the best environment to meet all your study spot needs.
1. Student Union
One of my favorite places to study on campus is the Carolina Student Union. I love to fuel up at Alpine Bagel before I start my work! There are several floors to explore and even treadmill desks on the first floor. The Student Union is a great spot for breaks between classes and the Wendy’s on the first floor is a great place to grab a quick bite to eat.
2. Davis Library
Davis is a classic spot to get work done on campus and has a great location by The Pit. I love popping into Davis between class breaks to catch up on work. The bean tables on the first floor are a great area to be collaborative with others through group projects and study groups. The first floor is meant to be loud and talkative and as you go up the levels, each floor gets progressively quieter.
Regardless of how intense your studying needs to be – Davis is guaranteed to have a spot suited for everyone. Floors 3-8 also have study rooms you can reserve ahead of time, which is a great way to schedule some uninterrupted quality studying time. I highly recommend exploring all eight floors of Davis during your time at Carolina.
3. Residence Hall Study Lounge
I love to work in the lounges inside the residence halls. A perfect way to get some work done and meet people in your building. Also, super convenient for those late-night study sessions because it is so close to your room!
4. Outdoor Areas
With the perfect fall weather coming soon in Chapel Hill, I love finding a spot outdoors to do some work. Whether that’s under the big tents sprinkled around campus or finding some picnic benches by the residence halls, I love being able to get a breath of fresh air when cranking out assignments.
Laying out a blanket on the quad or finding a place in the Arboretum is also a great way to spend time outside and study. The views are great!
5. Port City Java
Finally, Port City is a great place to grab a cup of coffee and study. I highly recommend an Iced Carmelo Leche! Port City has a great atmosphere and a conveniently located in Chase Dining Hall in South Campus and the Rams Head Rec Center.
