The bean bag area located on the 5th floor is a place to get cozy among the other sleeping students free of any judgement. Students can also enjoy board games or use the computers on the 6th floor up to the 10th floor for academic purposes (or Facebook). If you want some quiet time for yourself, DLSU's library is only a few steps away.

Exile serves a unique taste of Western food with a Filipino recipe twist. You can hang out with your barkada while enjoying their best-selling ice cream or have a study group sesh. It also features interesting artworks usually from students. Their bookshelves are filled with university art and literary portfolios. When you look up, you'll see a table set glued on the ceiling. Weird? Nope, it's art.
