So you're in the City of Lights, the Eiffel Tower is sparkling, and it's time to...study!? Yes, you heard that right. It is called study abroad for a reason, after all. Now, the dilemma is finding out where to go...This list is from most to least "I feel guilty about studying here because it's so un-French."
No need for explanation.
2. Costa Coffee.
A British chain, which is great because they serve coffee in real mugs.

3. Reid Hall...
...or your unique study abroad program's local headquarters.
4. Paris 7 Denis Diderot Library.
You don't even need a student card to get in, and they have plenty of places to sit, desktops, printing, and a good study atmosphere. Check the hours though because French school libraries tend to close fairly early (earlier than American university libraries).

5. Sorbonne library.
Beautiful architecture, French spoken all around, what more could you want?
6. Jardin de Luxembourg.
You can tan and study at the same time! (well, not in the winter, mais quand même).
