Top 5 Quiet Study Spaces at Ryerson to Warm Your Exam Season Blues

Happy exam season everyone! Toronto may be a constantly bustling city, always filled with energy- but that doesn’t mean there aren’t some really great spots to stick your nose in a book and study.

Take a look at some of our favourite study spots…

1. Ryerson Library

Okay, this one might be a little obvious- but Ryerson’s library deserves more credit than it gets! It’s almost always silent and if you can snag a window seat, you’ll also enjoy breathtaking views of the Toronto skyline while you study.

2. Rogers Communication Centre- 2nd floor

Gorgeous natural lighting that is usually overlooked, this cute spot is perfect for cramming for that last-minute essay.

3. Balzac’s

So maybe not the quietest spot on campus- but the atmosphere of this café is sure to inspire you to get work done. Order yourself a fancy latte, set your books and laptop down on the window-facing marble bar and get to work.

4. Panera Bread

It may be just off of Yonge and Dundas (probably the busiest intersection ever?!) but there is so much seating in this restaurant you’re bound to find a spot. Looking for somewhere extra cozy? Buy an XL coffee and head to the 2nd floor! Hardworking students can be found there at all times.

5. Kerr Hall

When classes aren’t in session, it’s pretty easy to find an empty classroom where you (and some friends) can get some hard-core studying done. Just make sure the room isn’t needed by anyone else!
