Don’t panic. Finals may be just around the corner, but there’s still a whole weekend and the first few study days between now and then. Whether you plan on moving your mattress into Lau tonight until the morning of your last final, or if you plan on spending your last real weekend before break with other activities, Vox is here to offer some of the best spots in Georgetown to meet your study needs.
Happy studying, and forgive Vox for the light posting schedule over the next two weeks.
Let’s face it: Lau will be packed. While the lower levels offer some nice solitude and (mostly) working power outlets, securing your place there won’t be easy. If you call (202) 687-7607 one day in advance you can reserve a study spot or a group study room for 6-8 people, but only for a three-hour period.
Instead, try these spots:
The Blommer Science Library on the third floor of Reiss is easily accessible and has a lot of the benefits of Lau, like easy printing, study carrels, and desktops. But Blommer offers a bit more seclusion: you’re not likely to run into that crush of yours who will drag you off on a coffee break.
The Hariri Building is a campus favorite for its nice work booths and pleasant aesthetic and ambiance. It’s also very close to the snacks and coffee in the Leavey Center. If you need a nice place to spend long afternoons and evenings studying, then Hariri is a good choice. Just be sure to get there early if you want any chance of snagging a booth.
