Some people are born to crack open the books and get studying. And congratulations to them. But for a good many, scrolling on TikTok sounds much more appealing than thumbing through chapter upon chapter of mandatory reading materials. Whichever category you fall under — or maybe you’re somewhere in between — staying on top of your assignments is easier when you've got a workspace you adore, and if it's picture-perfect, you'll need some studying captions for Instagram to go along with your favorite pens and highlighters. If your current desk at home is seriously lacking, this is your chance to give your space a total makeover and start fresh.

Some people like to study at their favorite coffee shop. If that's you, recreate that vibe in your kitchen or backyard with a delicious cup of coffee in a cool mug and a chill pop playlist that totally sets the vibe. To get the campus library feel, make sure you have shelves to keep all your books in order. Organize them by title, or for something extra Insta-worthy, color-coordinate them. Then, add school spirit to your walls with campus artwork and banners. The studying captions are practically writing themselves.

Create a cozy space with a ton of vibrant lumbar cushions, or a modern WFH setup your friends will be jealous of with houseplants galore. Once you've got the perfect setting, you're ready to snap a studying selfie before diving into your to-do list. These 48 study captions will help you post and get right back to the books in no time.
