The idea of Study zone was to create a space where students can study at their own pace and at any time in an inspirational environment. The three-zones available in the study zone; the social zone, the quiet and the silent zone all share the same qualities of providing the basic needs like electricity, internet access, heating etc. the only thing that differs is the level of allowed social interaction between the students to ensure an inspiring and productive studying experience suitable for every single student.
Georget Al-kassis- Preparatory Year student for Medicine Faculty
My name is Georgette Al-Kassis, I am 17 and I am studying for the preparatory year at Damascus University. I come to Study Zone almost every day of the week The beautiful thing about this place is the atmosphere that you can't find anywhere else, students study in front of each other, which motivates them to achieve more. I learned about Study Zone last year when I was a baccalaureate, through my friends who used to study there. I used to spend most of my time in the Study Zone which reflected on my baccalaureate results as the good grades I gained, and the happiness of success because of Study Zone. I am now at university and still coming to study here.
Paul Alnasser-Third year at Faculty of Medicine
My name is Paul Al-Nasr, I'm 20 years old and I am in the third year at Faculty of Medicine. I learned about the Study Zone through my friends and Facebook page. I have been studying here for almost a year. Study Zone is a very special place and people who work here get close to students in addition to having many friends whom I met in this place. I almost spend all of my study time in Study Zone which provides a very quiet and relaxing place since it is an old traditional Arabic house. As a medical student, such a calm and comfortable environment is what I require and that had a positive impact on my life, just because I feel comfortable during my study in this place.

I am really grateful to them and glad to have found such an amazing place.
"My name is Elian Tahhan, and I am in my fourth year of studying Economics. I have been coming to Study Zone for three years. I study in the Quiet Zone because I need to concentrate in calmness while studying. I prefer Study Zone over other centers due to its staff, reception, and kind treatment we receive. The difference between studying at Study Zone and home is that it provides us with electricity, heating, and the calm atmosphere that home lacks sometimes."
