    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

    Seems like the eighth floor is most popular for NYU students, so maybe try avoiding it when it's busy? Read more

    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

    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!

    The top floor has the best views of Washington Square Park to stare at while you get work done.

    Two visitor passes per month available with photo ID. Just in case when you lose your campus ID

    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!

    Bottom floors open 24/7, graduate students get their own enclosed study areas.

    Gabriel Louzao · August 21, 2014
  • Clara L.

    You can hear the jazz music from Washington sq park in the East Asian Studies library!

    Depressing building. Security guards suck. And all of the good books are in the Courant reserves anyways.

    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

    The LL1 toilets are terrifying.

  • Sally R.

    4th, 5th, and 6th floors are my favorite. (They were renovated recently.)

    Be prepared: restrooms don't seem to have proper ventilation.

    North reading room has high ceilings and a great view of the park.

    So party tonight or what in Bobst? The librarian asks students to leave ??!!

    Sit by a window on the 5th fl. South wing. The sun warms it up.

    Grossest. Bathrooms. EVER. Seriously, how much tuition does it take to get a good scrub?

    8th floor reading room. Go. So quiet I can hear my heart beat. Forces one to concentrate.

    Jordan McLennan · September 22, 2013
  • Joyce S.

    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!!

    Joyce Sereia · August 16, 2013
  • Kathy L.

    Going down a floor? For the love of God, take the stairs.

    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.

    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?)

    the LL floors should be renamed South Korea when it's past midnight.

  • Roslynn A.

    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.

    Head downstairs for computer labs and convenient places to print your papers.

  • Heather L.

    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.

    Heather Li · February 25, 2013
  • Fatima K.

    Studying here is always so inspirational. Wooh, Nyu, I love you!

    Fatima Khalid · February 23, 2013

    Since when are there no stacks on 6? Plenty of tables now though!

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

    When you borrow a book from reserves remember to get your call number before you get there!!!!

    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.

    It's not tooooo bad here. At least everyone shares the misery together. Empathy <3
