With classes about to begin, it’s good to start with your best foot forward. Hopefully, these study spots will help you ace the semester.

1) Morris Library

Morris Library had to be in this list, so why not first. With four different floors, multiple study lounges, plenty of coffee, and an intellectual environment, it’s the perfect place for students to get some serious work done. If you get hungry, Bleecker Street is right around the corner.

2) Brew HaHa!

One of my personal favorites, Brew HaHa! is located right on Main Street. It is a smaller, cozier, laid-back environment with fast Wi-Fi, good study snacks, and who could forget the coffee. In the warmer months, it’s nice to go out back on the second-story porch to get some fresh air while working.

3) ISE Lab

The Interdisciplinary Science and Engineering Laboratory, (ISE Lab, pronounced “ice”), was renamed to Harker Lab last year after the former UD president. The ISE Lab has a modern, spacious, and almost futuristic feel when you walk into the building the first time. There are study lounges on each floor, with windows going from the floor to the ceiling in most rooms. Einstein Bros. Bagels, located in the building’s lobby, has great breakfast food and plenty of coffee to keep you going all day!

4) Trabant Chapel

If you like plush cushioned chairs, an elegant atmosphere, and plenty of lighting, this is the place for you. If you get hungry or need your caffeine fix, you’re a one-minute walk from the Trabant Food Court.

5) One Easton Study Lounge

This list wouldn’t be complete without including our brand-new study lounge. With three group study rooms, both Mac and PC computers, free printing, and free Starbucks coffee, what more could you need?! It’s located on the first floor of One Easton, so no matter how bad the weather is or what time of day, the study lounge is yours!
