You're a student. Your time is divided between studying and trying to work up the energy to study. You've been to all those quiet glass rooms in the library. You're sick of watching some guy pull hairs out of his binder rings. Yeah, I've been there too. Sometimes, you've got to mix things up a little. Here are five spots to get some work done on campus.
1. H Building 7th Floor
The 7th floor of the Henry F Hall building used to be where Grey Nuns residents ate all of their meals. It was really hectic and annoying up there, but now there's just a huge study space where the caf used to be. Sit near the end of one of the long tables so you can snag an outlet!
The greenhouse is a bit of a popular place, so you might have trouble finding a day when it's empty. However, it's still a great space to do work. It's super peaceful and even if it's crowded, it's totally worth it. Considering the crowd, it's actually quite calm and a great place to get your study on. Check it out!

3. The Hive
The Hive is great if you want to grab a bite to eat while you do your work. Their menu features some pretty healthy meals and so you'll be able to chow down on good grub while you study for your finals. There's a lot of table space at the back and usually, it's super quiet since everyone else is working, too.

I know this area of Concordia can get crowded, but sometimes, it's nice to feel the hustle and bustle of Montreal's student community. JMSB's building is one of Concordia's newest, so it's clean and modern. Even the street level has some tables and sitting areas. If you're looking to just catch-up on reading in a not-so entirely quiet area, then this is the spot for you.

The EV building is sneaky. It seems like a wide open space, and mostly you'll be in there to get to the tunnel or the gym. But if you take a right into the elevators, there are a bunch of floors with great seating areas—and they're usually completely empty!
