The library gets crowded leading up to finals. If that's where you prefer to study, get there early. If the library isn't for you, or you can't find a good spot there, try:
* Empty classrooms: if they are locked, just call security and they will let you in.
* Study rooms in residence halls: every residence hall at Bellarmine has its own study room. If you do not know where it is, ask your RA.
* Coffee shops: The Highlands area is filled with great coffee shops, if that's your study scene. Check out our earlier list of local coffee shops for some recommendations.
* Sacred Spaces: Each building of the Siena Complex and Anniversary Hall have sacred spaces that are open 24/7. The Anniversary Sacred Space in particular is open to everyone, not just those who live in the building. Our Lady of the Woods Chapel is also open 24/7, just watch out for Mass times.
