The Secret’s Out! Top 5 “Secret” Study Spots for Students
Amidst the various well-know study outlets on Boulders campus, which include Norlin Library, the Leeds School of Business Library and the UMC, there are many gems that have yet to be uncovered by most students. These study spots are secluded, quiet and creative in comparison to the popular, go-to study spots previously listed.
- The 5th Floor of the UMC
Beautiful view of the flatirons, quiet atmosphere and outdoor seating.
- Spark (on the Hill)
Available classroom rental, quiet atmosphere and mentorship
Many options, lots of seating and quiet atmosphere
- CU Museum of Natural History
Walls full of art, free coffee and tea, lots of table space
- Law School Library
Endless amount of tables, quiet atmosphere and sectioned areas
My favorite of these spots is the 5th floor of the UMC. It is usually empty, and on top of that, it is a silent study spot that gives anyone who wants it the security of hearing only his or her own thoughts.
Spark is a great place to study too because it is restricted to members. By becoming a member at Spark, students have access to study rooms and expertise: the members at Spark, which include the students who started it, are constantly looking for ways to help students, and especially students interested in start-up businesses.
The University of Colorado, Boulder has many opportunities for students to uncover study spots because of its size and its serene beauty. Students are able to study in rooms facing the flatirons, overlooking the grassy areas throughout campus and inside of buildings who’s walls are dressed with art.
