    Hello,

    i was wondering if you know about any place where students can go to study along the night. I have seen some of them on the 24hours open 7Eleven, Ministop, Dunking Donnuts, Jollibee,etc...but those places doesnt suit nice with my idea of a good study place.

    Thanks

    You're asking about a public place staying open 24/7 with no activity. Such place should shut down as it's pointless to pay even the electric.

    Open early is a decent alternative though. Most of the resto places are relatively tame before 11. The cafe in Bethel opens at 5:30 am. That's the earliest non 24/7 that I'm aware of.

    The McDs closer to Portal West has sectioned off areas. Late at night and early in the morning those areas are closed. If you sweet talked the manager, you could probably slip in and study undisturbed.

    During the day you could check out the library. I have never been inside, but it's next to the fire station.

    Very few places where they would have late night business to stay open for a 24 hour thing and I'd assume the idea is someplace with wifi as well. You'd be looking at McD and the odd coffee shop like Bo's on the boulevard if they are open 24 hours which I have no clue on.

    Sorry but I think the places you mentioned are "it" for night. It is what it is. Them or home, I've heard that some homes are quiet and suitable for studying in.

    This topic hits on a pet peeve of mine. There is a nice 'study' place called Infinitea, on the boulevard. But its supposed to be a nice place for people to go and have a drink and a snack. Instead, its taken over every evening by students who will buy one drink and then sit there with the free wifi all evening. It means that paying customers are SOL . I do wonder why the business owners do not charge a minimum consumable amount for each table so the freeloaders will move along. Its up to the students or the parents of the students to provide a study place or to pay a fee for someone else to provide it.

    Of course, if there are enough students willing to pay for a quiet, all night, study place then maybe it would be a good business idea for someone? Is the opening poster willing to pay for a quiet study area?

    Yes, it could be a good business. Places like that are very successfull in other cities like Cagayan. And here we have a LOT of students without a good study place...

    Don't mean to be trite here, but surely the Universities have libraries open 24-7. If not, time to demand them. Most UK/ME Uni's I've taught in do...but a world of difference between here n there I suppose....

    I suggest we not demand anything. If I were looking to import anything from the UK to the Philippines, study hall would be way down the list.
