A table and lounge area is right at the building's entrance. It's a perfect place to be close to the library — but not — when it's busy.

These modern, open study rooms feature tables, lounge chairs and other open seating options. The café and Starbucks coffee shop right next door is very convenient for a late night snack and caffeine fix.

This expansive television area is open to all students, except between the hours of 8 p.m. and 5 a.m., when it is only open to students who live in the residence halls.

A café with a relaxed atmosphere and many seating options open up to even more seating just outside on the patio where you can enjoy the sights and sounds of the wetlands, so long as the rain holds out!

Just inside the entrance there are several couches and coffee tables, perfect for a quick review of your notes before class. But Pawley's atrium-style architecture with the Lowry Center below means this area can be loud and echoey at times, making it difficult to study in groups.

A quiet, open area overlooking the lower fields has plenty of seating for multiple study groups. This area has fast, reliable Internet as not many people use it at the same time. There is also a microwave oven in the vending area.

There are many study rooms and lounges spread throughout the building. On the main floor, there is one that is connected to a vending area that has plenty of tables and chairs to get work done.

A spacious, open area with a lounge feel between the 4000 and 5000 buildings offers plenty of room for study groups, reliable Internet, cozy fireplaces and pool tables for fun.

The lounge on the lower level is open to all students until 8 p.m. From 8 p.m. to 5 a.m., the lounge is open only to students who live in the residence hall. The lounge has a large screen television and a pool table that's free to use, with vending machines just around the corner.

Varner has a seating area across from the Varner Recital Hall. This is a busy area, as Music, Theatre and Dance students will be performing across the hall for their final grade. But it's a good spot for quiet, independent study. There are additional tables and vending machines just down the hall where the building connects to Elliott Hall.
