I've found that I can no longer study in my own apartment because there are too many distractions. What are some of your favorite study spaces?

I bounce between the library at school and local coffee shops, but it really depends on what I'm working on. When I'm studying for finals, I need the library quiet vibe to keep me on task, but if I'm doing homework or writing, I go visit coffee shops around my campus to get a studious vibe that is still relaxing. Also, I'm addicted to coffee, so a coffee shop is the best of both worlds.
I like to do most of my studying outside on the quad, as I'm able to get work done while still enjoying the weather. I try to make studying more pleasant by hanging out in areas that are relatively quiet but still populated by other students, as I don't like feeling completely cut off while I'm studying. If I have a lot to do and need to study all day, I like to go to a coffee shop or somewhere where food is available, just so I can stay in the same place and don't have to waste time moving.
My favorite place to study is a quiet coffee shop. Somewhere with a strong wifi connection and a quiet, study atmosphere. A place with good coffee is a plus! Another great place is a library, whether that be your school's library or a public library.
I find administration office buildings on campus where classes are not generally held but students are still invited to go into. It is usually quiet, and comfortable there and students are definitely welcome. My favorite place is in the Honors, Scholars, Fellows building on campus that houses the Honors programs as well as the Fellowship offices. Most campuses have these departments so see what you campus has to offer!
It's very easy to get distracted when studying, so a change of scenery is always a good idea. While there's the obvious answer of the school library, I also found that during my time as an undergrad, I would much rather go to the local library - there were typically less crowded and it got you off campus for a little while as well.

Otherwise, if you aren't easily distracted by people coming and going, the local Starbucks or other coffee shop is a good way to go. I also recommend checking out bookstores or hanging out on the quad if the weather's nice.
