Study happier with the MIT Libraries!

Did you know that 94% of students who study in the library get better grades on final exams?*  There are tons of great study spots at the 5 libraries around campus, and everyone has a favorite.  You won’t know your favorite until you’ve tried them all.  Here are some highlights:

    Enjoy the beauty and natural light from the newly open skylight. Judging from the number of people in the reading room, the secret is already out! There are also more study spaces on the 6th – 8th floors, including spaces for groups on the 8th floor.
  • 24/7 spaces: 
    Dewey, Hayden, and now Barker, all have study spaces that are open around-the-clock for MIT students. Just use your MIT ID for secure access.
  • Individual & group study spaces: 
    We have spaces for both individual and group needs. You can even reserve some of the group study rooms. Some offer LCD screens with laptop connectors and even video conferencing capabilities.  Find out more about all of our study spaces.
