    2nd floor across from the Men's bathroom is a study room; turn right as you enter and there a super quiet study area attached that has amazing alcoves to hide away in for hours.

    It gets very quiet and peaceful at night to just walk around the quads. Good stargazing in front of the astronomy building.

    First time here? Don't even bother with 209, simply hit 210. Its warm and cozy atmosphere will never make you want to leave Butler.

    Check out the group study rooms on 4th floor if you are looking for an isolated place to study with friends.

    If you're not going to study, get the eff out... Please stop wasting your time and my quiet space. Very simple request.

    Head to the stacks for minimal distractions (no wifi). But bring a sweater, the stacks are about 10 degrees colder than the rest of Butler.

    Packed during midterms, but decent place to study. Go to 4th floor SE Asian studies for desk space and quiet.

    Surprised no one's mentioned this yet, but students sometimes hook up in the stacks, or the top floor construction areas... for the Undergraduate population, it's like a right of passage.

    If you're pulling an all nighter at least take a study break and watch the sunrise from butler roof - very worth it

    Hunt out one of the study rooms for peace and quiet – perfect for when you’re on a tight deadline.

    大学の図書館なので入りにくい感じはしますが、一般の人でも気軽に入れます。日本の図書館ではあり得ない、クラシカルで素敵な建築なので建築好きにはオススメです。
