    Spent many late nights and early mornings here! Try the chicken shawarma from the Cafe Biblioteca! The price is OK...They also have a great variety of herbal teas. Perfect for students I think! :)

    Not only is this a huge library with unlimited resources & a great place to study at any time of the day, but during midterms & finals week they provide FREE drinks & snack after 2:30 am for crammers

    This library makes you get work done if you find the right spot. I prefer the basement where there is computers or personal desks. Try the Cafe down stairs by the front for a great bite to eat!

    Basement is always a good place to get some quiet study time. There's a cafe there in case you need a quick lunch. Library gets crowded during finals. Open 24hr for students with ID except on weekends

    Try to be courteous for everyone. If the floor is designated as a quiet floor then don't whisper with friends or listen to music through your headphones, because we can all still hear you!

    Being Arizona State's largest library, it gets crowded especially around finals. Check out some of the smaller, less known, library's on campus encase you need a better place to study

    Great place to get things done, provides access to the Internet and to the plethora of books that sit on the shelves. Also a nice place to kill time and people watch.

    Cant focus at home? Come to Hayden to study. Particularly upstairs in between the book cases, here you can find some desks to be alone. Its very quiet too which is a plus.

    Hayden Library is only a good place to come to if you're working on a group project or with groups. Whenever I come here by myself it is always people talking loudly and it is usually hard to focus.

    club hayden? it's definitely a busy place, but a really good place to get homework done is on the third floor. Or if you are more scenic go to the second floor and over look the walk way.
  • Caitlin K.
    Caitlin KelleyFebruary 14, 2013
    Great place to study is the second floor in the plush chairs overlooking the lawn. There are outlets for your laptop; just don't go at sunset, the glare is killer.
  • Emily Z.

    Nice and quiet place to study. Located right in the center of the Tempe campus. Try an iced chai latte or iced thai tea from Cafe Biblioteca to make studying a little more enjoyable!

    Every aspect of this library is built for success in the Sun Devils. I personally spend a lot of time on the third floor, where they have intense quite areas.
  • Kaylyn P.
    Kaylyn ParsonsMarch 26, 2011
    If you're looking for a quiet place to study, don't come here. It's usually packed and there hardly any study rooms to do your work and get some peace and quiet. I suggest going to the Noble library.
  • Melissa R.
    Melissa RauchApril 10, 2011
    The first floor is such a great place for study groups to meet up. But if you want silence, the 3rd floor is extremely quiet and there are individual desks sectioned off for optimal concentration.
  • Ryan F.
    Ryan ForbesMarch 29, 2012
    Not the easiest place to study on campus and has become known as Club Hayden. If you are trying to study take yourself up to the third floor as it gets more quiet as you go to the higher floors.
  • Alex K.
    Alex KayFebruary 22, 2011
    The first floor is great for group studying and collaboration. If you need to concentrate and have some peace and quiet, go to the room right of the elevators on the 3rd floor.

    Study rooms are a solid way to go. I also like the tables outside the entrance to the library, a good place to chill and hang out without too much people and noise.

    There are now adapters to connect Apple laptops to the MediaScape (large tv monitor at the group study table on the first floor). Just check them out with your SunCard at the Info/Check Out desk.

    If you want to get some studying in dont go to the group study areas & if you want outlets for your computer go to the second or third floor. The bottom level right when you walk in isnt a good spot.

    If you are looking for a really quiet area to study or work on assignments go to the 3rd floor, most people don't go there so its relatively empty all day, even during busy exam weeks.

    If it was not for the little cafe at Hayden library I would have had no desire to study there. They have great coffee, sandwiches, salads, and bottled Coca-cola!

    Do not use the basement computers that have an auto-logout feature. There will be a sign near the computer to indicate the time limit. But, students can study comfortably on the cushioned furniture.

    take the elevator to the third floor, go to the right, and then to the left. the desks along the window/wall are usually open, and have lots of outlets around them. and it's quiet there!

    They actually have a lot of study materials behind the front desk. You just have to swap out your sun card to borrow them.

    If you need a quiet place to study but don't want to be a loner and/or confined to a cubicle, try out the 3rd floor. It's exactly what you're looking for.

    Gets busy around finals or midterms. Once you get a spot, hold onto it because the moment you'll leave it'll be taken.

    More outlets activated on Upper Concourse (in the structure in the middle of the room) & Level 3 (in the tables with the blue dividers).

    If you need to print something you can put money on a card via a little machine located on the wall next to the copier. This allows printing without sun dollars.

    There are NO Macintosh computers in Hayden. So if you can suffer on a Dell while hearing painfully loud keyboard clicks from all around, stay here and keep COOR 150 less crowded.
