Find your study space in time for exams—Use the Library’s “Explore Study Spaces at UVA” map

Exam time is coming. Need a place to study?  Use the Library’s Explore Study Spaces at UVA map to find your space. The Library has located prime study space inside and outside the Library, both on and off the beaten track, that will suit those who need a quiet place for solitary concentration, or those who require something more conducive to discussion and group activity.

Go to the site and choose the tab that will take you to spaces that fit your requirements—Group Study, Quiet, or Reservable space—and click a thumbnail image to get a complete description of the room. For instance, clicking the thumbnail of the McGregor Room (aka the Harry Potter Room), tells you the following:
