Every year thousands of students spend hours and hours holed up and hibernating in libraries across NSW studying for their HSC. Whilst libraries are a fantastic place for students to study, we are all probably aware some are better than others!

Serious hard-core study requires the right environment – you want to avoid the crowds, the noisy kids running around, find a comfy lounge and be free from distractions just to name a few requirements – essentially you need to choose the right location and the right library for study success!

Check out our review of Macquarie University library below to see if this is the best fit for your study success!
