Boston Public Library

Less than a 5-minute walk away from the Bay State campus, students can find arguably the most aesthetically pleasing spot in town. Bates Hall in the Boston Public Library is seriously something out of a Harry Potter book, and is perfect for someone who is looking for some peace and quiet to get their work done. Enjoy free wi-fi, power outlets, and ample space to spread out. With a library card, you have access to every resource in the building, which is sure to help on that research paper you have coming  up.  

And when it's time for a break, make sure to stop by Newsfeed Cafe, located right in the building. On Mondays, they host student nights, where $10 gets you a hearty meal that's sure to keep you going in even the most hopeless of times.

Need the caffeine but can't deal with the hustle and bustle that comes with crowded coffee shops? Look no further. Wired Puppy has a seating area separate from the storefront with dim lighting and free wi-fi that is sure to help you keep concentration.
