Private Study Room @ the Y

The Private Study Room at the YMCA of Greenwich is a study space solution for high school students who seek an accessible and safe environment outside the home in which to complete a virtual school day.  Located in the 2nd floor Centennial Room the private study room offers a favorable atmosphere for independent academic productivity and focus.

Participants of the study room have access to resources at the YMCA for recreation and “brain breaks” as their schedules permit, including ping pong, foosball, use of the Wellness Center (15 and older)*, use of the Olympic Pool for lap swimming*, and use of the indoor and outdoor basketball hoops according to state guidelines.   Daily reservations for the study room are available with an active YMCA membership.  Capacity is limited to 4 students/session.
