Actually I need a place closer to the NIH in the Rockville area but I'm willing to travel. I'm looking for something like a library that is open 24 hrs a day. I just moved to this area from Chicago which had NW whose business school was open 24 hrs a day. Does Maryland state have this or John Hopkins. Any sort of nice quiet place would help. Thanks everyone.

Hi,

GW's undergrad library has a 24-hour study room but I dont think they allow non-GW students access to that room afterhours.

Yeah, other than GW's Gelman library, I don't know any other places open 24 hrs a day. Nowhere on NIH campus does that happen.

Doesn't the NIH campus have any libs?
Yeah, 2 (1 good one and 1 that sucks big time), but they aren't open after 5 or 6 p.m. But, the National Library of Medicine (the good one) is awesome for research.

I don't know about D.C. per se , but you might try places like Denny's or Perkin's. We do it all the time (all-nighters), and they even have coffee/food right there! Depends on the type of studing, though, and whether you are one of those people that needs the absolute quiet of the library. Also, a good place to try is Kinko's - they're open 24 hrs, and most have a room where they have computers and workstations, which you can just go to and do your own work. Interestingly, we never have problems even though, technically, we generate no business. I guess they don't mind having students there, and, hey, if they stay on your good side, you'll come to them when you really do need to spend some money. Good luck.

Thanks for the suggestions everyone. I just moved to the area last week so I'm trying to find a place where I can work on my secondaries. It's such a pain for me to get work done in my apartment with all the distractions. I'm just curious but how many people on the forum are currently working at the NIH. I'm actually starting there next week.

Georgetown also has a 24 hour reading room. All may come too.

Try Georgetown...I just started graduate school here, so I'm not that familiar with the campus, but I'm pretty sure something is open 24 hours/day here.
