Best Study Spots on Campus

Your mom might say you can study anywhere, but let’s be real — some places are better than others. Avoid big distractions and hunker down at one of the best places to study on campus at U of I.

If you want to study with food...

Einstein Bros. Bagels

Einstein Bros. Bagels in the Idaho Student Union Building is a great place to take a break between classes and bogart a table, especially if you’re the type who prefers to study with friends and a little background noise. Besides, you can’t go wrong with hot bagel sandwiches and fresh coffee.

Idaho Student Union Building

Believe it or not, the Idaho Student Union Building Food Court has some quiet pockets. Grab a table and a snack or lunch, and you’ve got a great place to review notes before a quiz. 

If you want to study at home...

Residence Halls

Each residence hall has a study space, or you can study in your own room! The best part about the residence hall study spaces is that there’s a schedule for academic coaching (kind of like a tutor, but they help with more than just one subject).

Greek Houses

If you live in a house with other individuals, you can study with them, share course knowledge or get help. Each fraternity or sorority house has a study table in the dining room or other area set aside just for studying.

If you want to find secret study spots...

There’s a secret study spot in every building. But that’s the thing, they’re secret. Get brave and explore your college’s lower floors (hint: many of the basement levels are amazing). You may find a quiet nook, study rooms, small computer labs or benches that are just far enough out of the way. Or, in the larger buildings, travel to the top floors. You might be amazed with the spaces you’ll find.

If you want the place everyone agrees is the best...

The Library 

The University of Idaho Library has it all. The fourth floor is a silent floor — don’t bother with your cell phone or study group, this floor has rules — and is great for when you need absolute quiet to concentrate.

The third and second floors have group study rooms and single-human study pods (a seat, a light and a desk) so you can get the work done without visual distractions. You’ll find drop-in tutoring on the second floor as well.

The first floor has both group and individual study areas, whiteboards on wheels, the MILL (which isn’t really for studying, but it’s for learning, so it counts), people to help you, a computer lab, comfy couches and so many study pods. The Library also has The Fish Bowl, which is part study space, part cafe and totally awesome.

You can use the Library 24 hours a day, with just a few exceptions in building hours.
