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

    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.

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

    Great people watching on the second floor by the windows. There are even a few high desks with stools (&plugins!)

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

    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.

  • Diatre P.

    If you happen to find an empty study room, hold on to it like it's the only thing that matters!

    Women bathrooms are not well maintained. I have seen many horrible surprises in the stalls. Tip use bathroom on another floor!

    Corn Muffins and Scones are surprisingly awesome.

  • Jason A.

    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.

    Jason Alarcón · February 21, 2011
  • @joeljet

    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.

    I feel very bad for Soohuen H. He is mayor of Butler... and Knox... that's a lot of walking.

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

    Head up to the sixth floor for the best view of the main campus (and some peace & quiet) Read more

    Nicholas Murray Butler wasn’t arrogant enough to name this edifice after himself. It was originally called South Hall.
