The Ultimate List of Study Spots in & Around Town

At The Jolly Roger, we understand that study and academics go together like Crimson and Gray. That’s why we’ve cherry-picked four awesome nearby spots for you to get your study on in Greenville, North Carolina. 

Quiet Places to Study Near Me

If you’re looking for a quiet, comfy place to study on campus, then look no further than Cynthia’s Lounge, located less than a mile from your front door inside the Mendenhall Student Center. Not only is Cynthia’s Lounge a quiet room, but there’s plenty of comfy couches, tables, and chairs so you can find the optimal study location. 

Unique Places to Study Near Me

If you’re that student that always imagined yourself lying down on a big green space on campus, then studying outdoors at The Mall is your perfect place. Studying under that warm Carolina sun in an Eno Hammock is even better. When the weather permits, you’ll see Eno hammocks pop up between the various trees at The Mall. So hop on up, get your study on, and then enjoy a nice afternoon nap! How awesome is that? 

Coffee Shops to Study Near Me

Of course, you can’t have a list of study spots and not include a coffee shop. COFFEE + SPICE has that local indie coffee shop vibe. Big windows, plenty of comfy seating, t-shirts for sale at the front – you know the deal. Be sure to ask for the white chocolate mocha. We don’t know what they do over there, but it’s something special. You’ll have a bit of a walk, though. COFFEE + SPICE is about a mile and a half down the road. 

There’s No Place Like Home

The final entry on this list is a bit of a cheat, but as the saying goes, there’s no place like home. At The Jolly Roger, you’ve got endless options on where to knock out some homework. Obviously, there’s the comfort of your own luxury apartment, the 24-hour computer bar, study lounges, and private study rooms. You can even pull up a cabana chair at the rooftop pool. Just sit far enough away so you don’t take on any water damage to your laptop or books. With so many options, you’re sure to find more than a few ideal study spots to crush your academic goals.
