You need to go there during their operating hours. Another place you could go is the library. Yes, it is quite, and they have a few computers, and the speed of the internet is not bad. Another place you could go to is an internet café. It has the same features as a ISSUES FOR MODERN COLLEGE STUDENT library except it is not always quite there.
