Baruch College has created a study space for those in need of a quiet environment to do their work this past semester.

Requesting to the quiet study space on campus was one of the most popular demands from the student body of the administration. The quiet study space would allow students to focus on work without disturbance.

Currently, the only available space study space takes space is in room 1-107, also known as the Multi-purpose room, and the cafeteria. There are two time slots that can be reserved; the first is from 8 a.m. to noon and the second is from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.

Students who are worried about the sanitation of the spaces need not worry, because they are cleaned during the two-hour gap between the slots. All students are mandated to follow the social distancing guidelines Baruch provides and no group study rooms are allowed.

To use these study spaces, students must follow the Safety Conduct Protocols and complete pre-screening through an app called Everbridge in order to gain entry.

It is stressful when there are different kinds of distractions while studying at home, so these study options are highly recommended to those who are able to travel and reserve a quiet study space if needed.

Spots at one of the quiet study spaces are available to every student.
