Finals Week: Study Grind + Coffee Grind

It’s the most stressful time in the quarter, but the library is here to help you survive finals! We’ve extended our hours at Shields and partnered with the CoHo, who will be selling snacks and coffee in the Shields lobby during the evening hours.

Destress for Success

This event has been canceled due to the university’s COVID-19 protocols.

Thursday, March 12 8:30-10:30pm | Room 167

UC Davis Student Health and Counseling Services will be holding a stress-relieving event on the Thursday before finals. Come out for free snacks and raffles! Coloring stations, Play-Doh/slime stations and stretching stations will be available.


Get your coffee grind in during your study grind! During finals week, a CoHo table will be set up in the lobby of Shields. Coffee, tea, fresh fruit, baked goods and snacks will be available for purchase. See hours below.

Shields After Dark

To support students preparing for finals, the Main Reading Room study area will be open 24 hours from March 15-19. After 2am, students must use their Aggie card to access both the 24-Hour Study Room on the first floor and the Main Reading Room on the second floor through the entrance facing the Quad. Click here to see a map of the areas that will be open 24/7.

Got all that?

Here’s a quick recap:

And good luck on finals, Ags!
