The Study

Location: Willis Library: 1st Floor, Room 134
Today's Hours: 12:00 pm - 12:00 am

UNT Libraries have brewed up an eclectic and cozy new place for students, staff and faculty to recharge, relax, and refuel in Willis Library. The Study, which replaces the Cyber Café, is conveniently located in just inside the front doors of Willis. It features a coffee bar, new menu items and ample space for studying or socializing.

In addition to fresh coffee and an array of snacks, creatively sourced décor adds to The Study’s ambiance. Surplus pieces such as traditional light fixtures, vintage typewriters, and even repurposed card catalogs lend a classic library air to the space. Handmade wall hangings using photographs from UNT Libraries’ collections add a whimsical touch.

In an effort to promote sustainability, The Study uses cups made from recycled materials instead of Styrofoam, which was used in the Cyber Café. And, customers who bring their own mugs receive 50 cents off their drink. Buying local is another new effort of The Study, which has partnered with Denton coffee roaster Bookish Coffee to serve their locally roasted and ground beans.

The Study branded merchandise, such as travel mugs and t-shirts, will be available for sale in the cafe.  All profits from The Study will go toward funding UNT Libraries services and programs.
