    Opened in 1907, Johnston Hall is Marquette University's very first building on the campus. The five-story Gothic-style academic hall is named for benefactor Robert A. Johnston (1846-1907).

    The Jpad is a great place to kill time between classes or study. It's not always as busy as the other study places on campus and there's usually an available table or chair!

    The apples in the J-Pad are what I live off of for snack between classes. Also, there sports center is always on and there are a variety of different magazine. A great place to go during breaks.

    One of the most underutilized places on campus is definitely the JPad. This area is great for watching a little TV on comfy couches. And if you're hungry, grab a free Granny Smith apple!

    Stephanie Ramirez · October 12, 2013

    They have free apples every Mondays and sometimes they have a table full of cookies, fruit, drinks, and other snacks from events or speakers that no one eats.

    There used to be empty classrooms on the fifth floor that were open to everyone and were a good place to do group projects. Think you need a key for them now...

    Make sure to stop into the j-pad for a free granny smith apple! But make sure you head over towards the beginning of the day because they run out fast!

    You can learn an incredible amount there, just don't do it on crutches (not easily done).

    If the j-pad on the first floor is too busy, check the study tables on the 3rd and 4th floors! They have windows for daydreaming and outlets to charge up!

    The student lounge, commonly known as the Jpad, is an amazing space to chill filled with wide screen televisions, study tables and leather couches. Also, the coffee machine makes a mean cappuccino

    Great building for being over 100 years old! The J-Pad is a great study place on campus for group projects. The only problem is it is always busy. Therefore, individual studying is not advised here.

  • Grace L.

    The wakerly lab is one of the most helpful places on campus for comm majors. The staff is always willing to help with adobe programs and it's a great spot for group projects.

    Waiting for the elevator is overrated. It takes long than walking up the stairs. Get some exercise in and take the stairs.
