With high schools delaying their opening, colleges closing on-campus housing, and parents being forced to work from home, many are left with one very important question, where can I find student study space in NYC? Since the COVID-19 pandemic has forced family members to work from home, in many cases, a NYC residence is not equipped to provide a student with a proper work environment.
There are many reasons why a typical household has become a challenging work environment. For starters, parents that normally work out of traditional office space in NYC are now working out of their homes. This not only creates a distraction for the working parent, but in many cases, the students are forced to work in the same room as their parents. This creates added pressure that can interfere with a student’s concentration.
Besides having to work around your parents, you might be faced with the added stress of having to deal with a sibling, pet or other household distractions. Studies show that the recovery time for a distraction could be up to 15 minutes. While working from the home, such interruptions could occur repeatedly.
Internet service providers are very good at distributing a robust amount of bandwidth in normal situations. But when everyone is simultaneously using the connection, the circuits are overloaded, degrading the quality of the service. Neither the parents nor the students can afford to have dropped connections. From Zoom calls to downloading research to study groups, the balance of bandwidth is being challenged everywhere.
Traditionally, libraries have been the go to study space outside of the home, but many are not open to full capacity, making them an unreliable resource. Coffee shops have grown in popularity over the years, but for the foreseeable future, they are closed to inside seating.
Recently, shared workspaces have grown in popularity among people looking for student study space in NYC. Private office space, with a strong Internet connection and a lack of distractions make this the perfect alternative.
