Study Spots and Library

Looking for a place to study on campus? In addition to the Cardinal Cushing Library, Emmanuel’s campus offers several options for group and individual study.

Cardinal Cushing Library
The obvious choice for study space on campus! The two floors of the library include ample seating and tables for group collaboration as well as 50 individual studying carrels. Students also have access to computer stations and the assistance of Emmanuel's experienced library staff. For more focused study help, students can visit the Academic Resource Center (ARC) on the ground floor to take advantage of services including peer tutoring, study groups, academic counseling, math and writing specialists, disability support services and academic strategy workshops.

Maureen Murphy Wilkens Science Center
Open to all students day and night, each of the building's four floors features an atrium outfitted with chairs, sofas and tables ready for individual or group study. Students can also check out the center's breakout and conference rooms, which can be accessed with a valid Emmanuel ID.

Jean Yawkey Center

It may be the hub of campus, but it's also a great place to get schoolwork done. There's plenty of seating in the lower atrium, while the second floor serves as a popular place for students to read, write and meet with class groups.

Residence Halls
In addition to individual rooms, each of the four residence halls has main lounges available for studying. These include Hynes Square in Julie Hall, St. Ann Hall's lounge, the Recreation Room in St. Joseph Hall and Loretto Hall's lounge.
