Located at 3390 MacKenzie, McCoy’s Study Lounge is named after Elijah McCoy, an Inventor and Engineer who is the seed from which the phrase "The Real McCoy" stemmed. Born in 1844, in Colchester, Ontario, he later developed a revolutionary device for oiling industrial machinery, as well as the ironing board and the lawn sprinkler. The Vice-President, McCoy Manufacturing Company, Detroit, Michigan, died October 10th, 1929, but his ingenuity and perseverance lives on in today’s young engineers. It is fitting then, that a place of learning, study and creativity be named after McCoy.

McCoy's offers a variety of tables and desks for individuals or groups which are available for use on a 24-hour basis. On one wall of McCoy’s is a large chalkboard for visual problem solving, diagram drawing and group reviews.

McCoy’s is a student-run Lounge that relies on the help on its patron for its upkeep and maintenance. It is funded by the Carleton Student Engineering Society for use by all students in the Faculty of Engineering and Design at Carleton University. It is a 24-hour facility, although the MacKenzie Building does lock its doors, at which time the only tunnel exit open is under the Minto Building.
