Studying on Campus

I’m currently sat in the main University library, somewhere on the second floor, surrounded by other folk sat typing at their laptops. This floor is one of two in the library where talking in groups is fine, as you venture further up, silence is compulsory. Happily, this rule is well accepted by everyone, and as you venture above the second floor you’ll not be distracted by anything, which is perfect if you’ve got some real work to do!

Aside from the library, there are loads of other places to study. Learning grids are dotted around the university, as well as cafes if you decide you need everyone to watch you work, or need to write a screenplay.

You’ll have likely seen pictures of groups of friends sat out on a sunny lawn joking with each other whilst studying and working on various projects in University literature. Whilst this looks great, the reality is you’ll try to revise outside once and one of two things will happen: you’ll either realise The University of Warwick is in England, and it’s therefore too cold to sit outside to work, or you’ll be lucky and be outside on one of the two sunny days per year. If this is the case, you’ll not want to waste the sunny day working, and end up playing football or something.

Either way, studying outside with friends probably isn’t something that’s going to happen – sorry to burst that bubble.

Places to study around the university can get busy – especially in term 3 when the people who haven’t listened or worked all year are busy learning the entire course, and the people who have worked all year are busy revising. Thankfully, I’ve never been in a position where there’s been nowhere for me to work, there’s always somewhere! As of this year, the library is also open 24/7! You may read this and think that the new library opening hours won’t impact you, maybe you think you’ll never have to be in the library at 3am trying to finish going through your lecture notes.

You’re wrong.

At some point in every student’s life, there will be a late night revision session. And now, thanks to the new opening hours, you can be around other people in the same predicament (it’s always nice to know you’re not alone!).

If study space is something you’re worried about, don’t be – there’s plenty!

That’s all for now,
