It is a popular thought that changing your study space possibly increases your productivity, learning, and recall abilities. We have also found this activity quite helpful when studying during the exam season. Therefore, here are some spots in Qatar where you can have the mind boosting experience of learning and studying during the exam season.

Qatar National Library

It is not just a regular library; this is the Qatar National Library (QNL) which offers the best study experience in Qatar. Whether you are at the Library to study, work, research, or just relax with a book, you’ll find the space you need. The Library has a variety of reading and study areas, from open tables and reading rooms equipped with lights, power outlets, and internet points, to private seating areas between the bookshelves, with sofas, seating cubes, and benches. There are also 28 study carrels that serve as quiet spaces for individual study, each equipped with a desk, a bookcase, and power outlets. Free Wi-Fi is available, you have to log in to ''QNL- Guest''.

The library also has prayer rooms and a café/restaurant. Additionally, the Qatar National Library-Metro station (Green Line) is within walking distance from the library, making it easier for students to commute to and from the place.

Opening Hours: Sunday- Thursday 8:00 am- 8:00 pm 

Note: Due to Covid-19, the library visit will be accepted by appointment only. Visitors will be allowed under the following conditions:
