GREAT STUDY SPOTS Toronto Reference Library - This monolith of knowledge at Yonge and Bloor is, essentially, the entire city's study hall. At five massive floors, there are plenty of places to pull up a chair and finish off that term paper. Charidise - This Baldwin Village restaurant is massive, boasting two floors with a capacity for three hundred. The huge space is dynamic enough to accommodate many different needs, especially those of nearby U of T students. Robarts Library - University of Toronto kids are the ones who frequent this library most. It's important to note, the basement and first floor tend to be noisier due to socializing students; it's quieter in the upper floors, where big tables in the corners of the stacks offer some nice views. Gerstein Science Information Centre - While Robarts is the first study suggestion out of many U of T students' mouths, Gerstein, tucked further south into the university campus, is a close second. The atmosphere is surprisingly stately, with some cushy armchairs, grandlooking tables and chairs, and lovely natural lighting. Page One Cafe - This cafe and cocktail bar on Mutual St. is favourite among Ryerson faculty and students alike. There's plenty of seating, a chill vibe and lots of nourishment to keep the energy up. 5 Elements Espresso - The Italian-inspired cafe in Yorkville offers two floors of studyfriendly space. There's a mix of solo seating and large tables, so it's great for tackling everything from essays to group work. Istanbul Cafe - The Turkish cafe offers a warm and inviting environment to sit back and relax while you get your work done. The space has ample seating that are conductive for independent work or group projects. Student Learning Centre - Even the New York Times praised the newish Ryerson Student Learning Centre. The slick building features lots of study space, including The Beach, a tropical themed, open area on the sixth floor. You might want to head here early to grab a space and hit the books. Krave Coffee - The St. Clair West cafe has quickly become a fan favourite for working and studying. Its two-person tables are ideal for solo caffeine-fuelled cram sessions. Merchants of Green Coffee - The Riverside coffee experts go beyond schooling you in the realms of beans. They offer visitors a warm and cozy work space whether you want to camp out on the couch or work by the bar.


LIBRARY Parkside is planning on starting a little library as an initiative on one of the common room floors. So look out for the library coming to the 9th floor. The goal is to give students more access to reading materials in their free time, and to give them the opportunity to share their genres of interests with other students. It will be a quiet place where students can relax, rather than share large study spaces such as the glass box. It will be safe and inclusive to everyone. Students are welcome to donate books and sign out books as long as they are respectful towards the books and bring them back for other students.
