    The design of this library is pretty cool. The entrance is grand and I wish I was able to see it before they put the guard rails though they did a great job making it aesthetically appealing

    If you get thrown out of Coles during summer (this is real) you can use the staircase at bobst as a substitute for the stair master. Super effective and air con is better than in the gym. #work

    There R bathrooms on almost every floor; fl 3-10 in the NW and NE corners, LL1 and LL2 on the north side of the bldg. Great study views from north side floors 4, 6, 8, and 10. SUPER helpful librarians

    Staying for a while? Make sure to pack a lunch and not rely on food in the area. Very expensive and very limited depending on time of day. The library lets you set up a picnic while studying.

    best place ever. you should borrow the macbooks and use the microwave/hand dryers in LLI, check out the amazing fales collection on the 3rd floor, socialize in 5th South and sleep in 8th North

    Get here early! The higher up you go, the quieter it gets. Best to bring your snacks in, quick and cheap! If you start to loose focus, take a walk or move to a new floor!

    The graduate student exchange will sometimes contain a few inconsiderate humans who talk at the top of their voice despite the din of an otherwise quiet room. Noise canceling headphones necessary.

    If you want to talk, even whisper to your neighbor step the fuck outside to the hall was because it's incredibly rude and distracting. You will be glared at and or asked to go outside.

    The door's not that tricky, guys. Put your hand where the sign that says "place hand here" is, listen for the click, then exit. You're in grad school; it shouldn't be that hard.

    5th floor has a state of the art computer lab equipped with GIS and other specialized research software- check it out! Also, awesome free scanner in the same lab.

    Sometimes Bobst all-nighters are inevitable, but never fear, the napping spots here are endless. A short stroll around Bobst will no doubt provide some great options. Read more

    If your going to sit on the quiet side remember that everyone can still hear you if you talk on the phone by the bathroom....-_- always go to the balcony

    Don't look outside the glass or the new anti-suicide nets will make you depressed, if the nauseating floor pattern didn't do that already. Try LL1 for a relatively more cheerful ambiance.

    Ask the people at the Computer Center on LL1 to install the NYU Printing Service software on your laptop. No more waiting for a free computer to print!

    If you're an affiliate of NYU (e.g. Columbia student), you'll need a temporary Bobst Library Access Pass, available from the counter immediately to your left as you enter.

    If you think you have time to print here in between classes... you don't. We recommend trying one of the other lesser known printing facilities elsewhere on campus!

    The corridor with lockers and couches is pretty awesome. Great place to work and nap if needed. It empties out quickly when it's late.

    Ask your friends to watch your laptop and Go get a "mamouns falafel" with that crazy hot sauce! That will keep you up all night!

    Gorgeous, clean and comfortable for studying. Severe lack of diversity in fiction and quantity in non fiction tho.

    LL2- single rooms for study are NOT sound proof so don't be a jerk off and start having a phone conversation or group powwow in there!!

    Lower Levels are where it's at. They have private study rooms so you can lock yourself in to write essays the night before their due.

    The Graduate Student Exchange on the 10th floor is an awesome place to escape those pesky undergrads and hang with the over-21 study crowd. Love the whiteboards, too!

    Next to the women's bathroom there's a door - it's the single bathroom. Great if you like privacy and paper and paper towels.

    Whether it’s a study break or you need a book for that final paper - you have no doubt spent plenty of time in the Bobst Library (haven’t you?)

    Best place if you're new to getting work done and you don't want the intensity of LL2. AND it's open 24/7 :)

    Wonderful library, even if a lot of the books are housed off campus. And you can take out up to 200 books!

    The new golden atrium screens are perfect for peeking your nose through one of the gaps and pretending you're Hannibal Lecter, carefully watching all those below.

    Take the secret stairs to the second floor (past the 1st fl elevators, on your left). Save yourself the wait!

    Don't read tips by students since we're all trying to keep our special library hideouts a secret. Trust nobody.

    They literally constructed a giant cage around the inside of the building to prevent people from killing themselves. Just let that sink in for a moment.

    the gray leather couches on LL1 provide the ultimate napping spot. more than half the kids there are usually curled up and asleep

    pull an all nighter in a study room with friends for finals. bonus points if you are a commuter and make it your living room for the night.
