Before those long hours of studying during finals week, find a study spot at Mizzou Libraries. We have spaces for everyone. If you like dead quiet, check out rooms 201 and 202 at Ellis Library. Check out this Ellis Libray floorplan to see all the quiet spots. Journalism also has four private personal study pods on the bottom floor that are first come, first served.
But if complete silence isn’t your thing, try the Information Commons (or the first main floor of Ellis Library). There is always The Bookmark Cafe on the ground floor for coffee and conversation as well.
If it’s a group study spot you are searching for, try to reserve one of the group study rooms in either Ellis, Engineering, or Journalism. They can be reserved for up to two hours for each group. But remember, it’s best to plan ahead. They fill up quickly! The Health Sciences Library also has a small number of study rooms on their third floor reserved for people enrolled in health-related programs.
Remember, if your program has its own library, be sure to check out those spaces, as they are often designated specifically for you!
Finals week can be overwhelming, but doing some things ahead will save time later. Before finals start:
Studying off the Beaten Path
Let us study the libraries
As one prepares for exams,
And while the west stacks may seem scary,
Among the books is a great place to cram.
The Bookmark café may have it all:
Coffee, cookies, and outlets, to boot
While the trees shed their leaves in fall
The best study spaces have been hoarded like loot!
To ace your projects, papers, and tests
Seek study spaces off the beaten path
Whether it is chaos or silence you like best,
Let the libraries be your guide, compass, and map.
If alone or in mobs, find your refuge via Places to Study
Grab a desk in the stacks or reserve room 3G62 and bring all your buddies!
Get the most out of your group study session by reserving a study room in Ellis Library!
Doors or No Doors? On the first floor, we have rooms with doors and no doors for varying needs of privacy.
Film Studios 2E21 and 3E21 are our film studios. These rooms have a green screen wall that you can use to replace the background on video or photography projects.
Larger Rooms Take the elevator to 3R to find these spacious, private rooms. Check the schedule because sometimes these rooms are used for meetings or classroom instruction.
