Study Space

An Insider’s Guide to Jefferson Study Space

Thomas Jefferson University provides a variety of study areas to accommodate our students. These include areas for quiet/individual study, formal study by a group, and informal study.

For security purposes, students using open study space as described below must show their Jefferson ID, and may be asked to sign in at the Security Desk with their name and Campus Key, indicate in what area they will be studying, and sign out when they leave.

Please observe the restrictions for each space, and please remove any trash when you leave an area.
