As college students, school should always be our top priority, alongside networking and applying our professional skills. Balancing schoolwork and studying with jobs, clubs, and a social life, can be challenging! I’ve found you really need to find the right environment to study and get your work done. You might want to get out of your dorm room or have a change of scenery. For students who live in the New Yorker Residence Hall, here are some great nearby study spots.

Gregory's Coffee - 520 8th Ave, New York, NY 10018 

Who doesn’t love studying at a coffee shop?? This spot is only a two-minute walk from The New Yorker—it’s practically around the corner! They have dine-in options with tables, so you can grab a coffee, tea or smoothie and get to studying.

Think Coffee - 500 W 30th St. New York, NY 10001 

If you want a spot with a scenic walk, this one is for you. Located in Hudson Yards, this coffee shop is about a 12-minute walk away. With dine-in options as well, you can grab a matcha latte or a nitro cold brew, get your homework done, and then walk around Hudson Yards—maybe even do some shopping as a treat for completing a project!

The New York Public Library - Stephen A. Schwarzman Building, 476 5th Ave, New York, NY 10018

If you really need to focus in an ideal environment for studying, I find this library is the best place. The Stephen A. Schwarzman Building is about an 18 minute walk from The New Yorker, but it’s worth it! This building is known for its beautiful historic design and has ample chairs, desks, and shared tables. You get to be in a quiet space surrounded by lovely architecture. If it’s warm outside, right around the corner is Bryant Park with chairs and tables perfect for studying, too!
