As you engage in your study and learning, your study space will be an important part of your process. Visit the links below to find elements of a productive study space and physical strategies to support your learning and work, and then check out the following spaces on campus, too! If you have a place that you like and you'd like to share it, tell us about it! And if your study space isn't quite working, evaluate it: what's distracting you, and how can you make it better?

Milam Hall room 311 – School of History, Philosophy, and Religion Library

This space is quiet with many books that can be referenced and that were written by OSU professors.

The Memorial Union

This building offers several spaces that are usually quiet and can be used for individual and group study. It also has several places where you can purchase food/coffee.

Kelley Engineering Center

This building offers several study spaces as well as computer labs for students. There are nooks for studying and also a large common area outfitted with tables and whiteboards and markers. It also offers many power outlets where computers can be charged. 

Withycombe Hall

This building houses the Animal and Rangeland Sciences Computer Lab and Library, where students can meet in groups to study and conduct research. Because this is a lesser-known study space on campus, there is often available space for you to meet your peers. 

Valley Library Study Rooms

These rooms are useful for group study and can be easily reserved. It's nice to have a quiet area that's easy to find where everyone can meet.

Valley Library First Floor

This is the silent floor of the library (the 6th floor is the quiet floor) and provides you with an opportunity to study alone in a silent place in the library while still being able to access the books, internet, Undergrad Research & Writing Studio, and more. 

Learning Innovation Center (LINC)

LINC has several floors with different spaces to study individually or gather with a group. There are tables, chairs, and nooks of wall that act as whiteboards so you can work/talk through processes and steps and diagrams. You can find a lot of quiet space on the 3rd and 4th floors, and comfy chairs, too.

Strand Agricultural Hall (STAG)

STAG has several spaces for students to meet and work together or to study alone. This is a nice option because it's near the middle of campus and a quick walk to other buildings. 

The Science Success Center

This is a great place to study, located in Kidder Hall 109. Go on your own or reserve a separate study room for your work with peers. Also, enjoy playing with Legos when you need to take a break. Open M - F, 8 AM to 5 PM with a full staff of professionals and peer advisors, too.

Campus Computer Labs

If you need a computer lab for your work, check out the several available to students on campus. And, if your coursework requires software that your computer doesn't have, be sure to explore the Virtual Computer Lab. This can let you access a campus computer lab and its software. Not sure if this is what you need? Check it out!

Champinefu Lodge (formerly Avery Lodge)

This is a beautiful and welcoming study space with plenty of tables, couches and free Wi-Fi. Champinefu is equipped with a kitchen and fridge if you need to store your lunch or make a snack. The Human Services Resource Center (HSRC) also has a computer and printer that students can access.
