Study Spaces Around San Diego

A blog post from SOLES MA in Higher Education Leadership Ambassador, Aubrie Cook:
Working on a midterm? A PBL (problem based learning project)? A final? And you’re looking for study space? You’re in luck because San Diego has a ton of great spaces to utilize.
On campus
USD has a variety of places on campus available to graduate students to work on assignments. Need a quiet space and you’re in Mother Rosalie Hill Hall (MRH)? Check out the reading room! Feel like getting out of MRH but have a class in an hour? Check out the Copley Library. This library is not just for undergraduates and offers a different type of setting to get that questionnaire completed. Want to check out a different part of campus? A place I would definitely recommend to do some of your studying is the law library. There is a ton of quiet space here ranging from large table areas to individual cubbies – on an entire floor dedicated to quiet study. Want to do a bit of socializing with other graduate and law students while also getting some of your reading done? The Grad & Law Commons (SLP 401) is a great place to study and hang out. They offer a wide variety of programming geared towards grad students as well as bagel Wednesdays! Need to refuel on campus? Aromas has caffeine, snacks and tables perfect for studying.

Off campus
Feeling like getting off campus? Some of USD’s grad student’s favorites include Young Hickory, Lestats and Liberty Station. Young Hickory has several different types of table spaces ranging from large group tables, individual tables and bar type seating. They offer a variety of beverages from caffeine to grad level beverages. Need wifi, caffeine, something to eat and it’s 2am?! Lestats is your place! Open 24/7, Lestats is where you can pull that all-nighter needed for AR.
