Sometimes, especially around midterms or finals, you just need to get off campus to do your studying. This will really increase your focus and give you some stress-relief. This list will give you some insider information: the top four secret study spots in our beloved city.
1. Warren Anatomical Museum
Interested in the history and development of science? Hidden away on the fifth floor of Harvard’s Countway Library of Medicine is the Warren Anatomical Museum. It has old artifacts, bones, and tons of information. It’s super quiet up there, so you can definitely focus. Plus, you’ll get the satisfaction of saying that you technically studied at Harvard!
2. Brattle Book Shop
Brattle is one of the oldest (and most affordable) bookshops ever. This is one of my favorite places ever. They have a whole outdoor section, and then three floors of books inside and is great for finding some extra resources! In order to get here, take the Regis shuttle to Riverside and get off at Boylston.
3. Ogawa Coffee
Interested in trying new things? Ogawa Coffee on Milk Street brews coffee in a different way, drawing a lot of inspiration from their Japanese origins. They have very modern and comfortable furniture. It’s definitely laid back and relaxed, the perfect place to read those textbooks! To go here, take the Regis shuttle and get off at Park Street.
4. Trident Booksellers and Cafe
This indie bookshop not only has immense loads of literature, but it also has a cafe in it! Get come caffeine in you and crank out that essay. To go here, take the Regis shuttle to Riverside and get off at Hynes Convention Center.
