Perks: New state-of-the-art building, couches, lots of natural light
Perry World House officially opened this fall as a global policy research center. Students, scholars, and policymakers with international interests frequent the space for classes, workshops, conferences, and lectures. When the space isn’t being used for a special event, the first floor of Perry World House is also an excellent place to study. The World Forum is a bright, open space with lots of natural light. It’s typically set up with a number of round tables. The Study Lounge is a smaller, cozier room with couches that students have been known to nap on. Our favorite study nook in that room is the bay window with the comfy built-in seats. The Classroom features a whiteboard that’s great for working (and re-working!) math and science problems. Perry World House remains fairly undiscovered as a study space so it tends to be rather quiet with only a small handful of students at any given time. As a bonus, it’s right across from 1920 Commons if you need a snack or coffee break!
Before heading over to Perry World House, it’s worth taking a quick look at their website under “Events” to see if any events are currently scheduled for that day. A monthly calendar of events is in the works and should be live on the website in the near future.
If you have used Perry World House as a study space and have any thoughts or feedback or have an idea for another study spot on campus for us to highlight, please leave a comment below.
