Study Hard - Then Take a Break

Final exams are coming, and the University Library is the place to be when you're studying!

We have:

But while you're doing all that studying, don’t let stress get the better of you – you can also Take a Break at the University Library.


The library branches hosting Take a Break spaces are the Murray Library, the Leslie & Irene Dubé Health Sciences Library, the Engineering Library, the Education & Music Library, and the Science Library. These spaces are drop-in, casual, and fun. There is Play-Doh, crafts, puzzles, LEGO, board games, and more to help you to relax and refocus before getting back to the books.

Have a Snack

All of the seven libraries on campus will be giving out snacks, generously donated by the Alumni Association. You may even see some Alumni volunteers wandering through certain libraries, handing out treats! (p.s. The Science Library is, as always, food-free. Juice boxes will be available there instead.)

Cuddle a Therapy Dog

There will be visits from our four-legged canine friends, the St John's Ambulance registered therapy dogs from the PAWS Your Stress program.
