    The "Captain" chairs in the 1st floor Reading Room are very comfortable and perfect for a quick nap.

    Modern and spacious, the YRL provides a great study atmosphere for both independent work and group projects. It offers free laptop rentals and study rooms you can reserve in advance.

    Fifth floor is great but look out for occasional stressed-out grad students about to lose their marbles from the pressure.

    Look out for the guy in the hat and beard and sunglasses. He usually is on the 5th floor and WILL talk to you about aliens.

    The renovated first floor is nice and all but it's usually packed on weekdays. The upper levels are kinda ugly but I get better study sessions there.

    While your here, grab a coffee from the new cafe - they don't sweat you bringing drinks into the study areas anymore!
