    The ground floor is probably the most productive non grad student floor, and least occupied!

    Avoid the bitchy staff who don't let you have food in your bag. Maybe if I come smelling like food they'll try to kick me out too?

    Take a shit before you arrive. Each men's restroom has one stall and two urinals and the wait time - yes, even for men - can be unreliable.

    If you want to study quietly without being bothered, and away from a bunch of people, try first floor behind the bookshelves
