They offer a variety of “rooms” for different prices to fit every student’s needs and preferences including a quiet smoking area, closed rooms for private study sessions, single stations, silent area, smoking area, quiet area, and non-smoking area. They have great WiFi, plenty of electrical sockets, and noise levels are acceptable, but the wonderful thing is that if it gets too loud you can easily move to any other area. Sadly though, their coffee is instant and that is a major blow to their workaholic rated GPA.
