Quiet space to rest and reset

  • Reflection Room (Robarts Library, 8th floor) - a space for religious, spiritual and secular practices, including prayer, meditation, yoga and mindfulness 

Study space

Quiet study spaces are peppered throughout the University of Toronto's 44 libraries. Your best bets are: 

Quiet:

  • Earth Sciences library.second floor in the individual study areas!
  • 12th floor [Robarts] :) nice and quite :)
  • We don't want to tell [or] others will nab our favourite quiet corners!
