Five study spots to visit now that Afterhours Study is closed
Here are some options in case Starbucks feels too cramped and the library gets too crowded.
With school starting for some and examinations approaching for others, you might be looking for a study spot to catch up on your revisions. Unfortunately, one of Singapore’s more popular study spots Afterhours Study closed last year in November.
Thankfully, there’s no shortage of study spots scattered around the island. Since your own rooms or a Starbucks outlet can feel cramped, here are five alternative locations with free wifi and charging ports that you can hunker down in.
1. Lowercase Cafe
If you study in or around LASALLE College of the Arts, you likely already know about this first spot.
Lowercase is housed inside Block D of the LASALLE campus, and offers free Wi-Fi and sockets to charge your devices at. It also offers a wide selection of pizza, salads, steak and waffles to keep you energised while you study, with prices ranging from $10 to $20.
Address: Blk D #01-01, 1 McNally St, 187940
Opening hours: 9am to 7pm on Monday and Tuesday, 9am to 10pm from Wednesday to Friday, 11am to 10pm on Saturday
2. Sprout Hub
Located at the former Henderson Secondary School, Sprout Hub is a quiet study spot tucked away in Bukit Merah, surrounded by urban farms.
Not only does it offer free Wi-Fi and charging ports, there are also five food stalls to choose from when you start feeling peckish from all the studying. Public entry is free, so you can spend your days there without fear of breaking the bank!
Address: 102 Henderson Rd, Singapore 159562
Opening hours: 10am to 9pm daily
3. Tzu Chi Humanistic Youth Centre
Study spots are few and far between in the North, so check out Tzu Chi Humanistic Youth Centre – specifically, their designated study room Power Bank.
Power Bank’s minimalistic aesthetic makes for few distractions when studying, which you might need for long study sessions. The space has free Wi-Fi, charging ports, and most importantly: peace and quiet. There’s also a cafe in the building if you need to take a break.
Address: 30A Yishun Central 1, Singapore 768796
Opening Hours: 10AM-10PM daily
4. Vertical Space
Though Vertical Space is primarily utilised by entrepreneurs, students are more than welcome to use their facilities.
This study spot is a seven-minute walk from Pioneer MRT. It offers high-speed Wi-Fi, coffee and tea, and only costs $2.40 an hour. They also offer printing services, office supplies and meeting rooms, but those come with an additional fee.
Bookings can be made through Deskimo.
Address: 1 Soon Lee St, #06-14/15 Pioneer Centre, Singapore 627605
Opening hours: 8.30am to 6pm on weekdays
5. Our Tampines Hub
If you’re in the East, there really is no better place to study at than Our Tampines Hub.
Similar to the other locations, there is free Wi-Fi and charging ports. But the most attractive feature is easily the fact that it’s open 24 hours a day – perfect for late night study sessions and project meetings. In addition, there are also bakeries, cafes, and an entire hawker centre located inside the Hub.
Address: 1 Tampines Walk, Singapore 528523
