The study table is where the study group convenes in Group Study Room F. It has eight chairs and provides an area for the group's daily meetings and study sessions. Although referred to as a single table, it is actually two separate tables. Its first appearance was in the Pilot, and it along with the study room have been featured in nearly every episode with the one exception being Season Three's episode "Studies in Modern Movement".
In the Pilot, the study group first gathers around the table after being invited to Jeff's fake Spanish study group. In "Investigative Journalism" after Jeff tells Buddy he's not a part of the group, he pulls a hysterical Buddy off of the table and throws him out of the room. In "The Science of Illusion", Annie slams Jeff's head into it, believing he had something to do with an April Fool's prank. In "Modern Warfare", Jeff and Britta consummate their relationship on top of the table. In "Pascal's Triangle Revisited", Abed tries to figure out the perfect farewell to the study room and table at the end of the semester.
Cooperative Calligraphy", the study group flips the two tables over and uses them as cover while they strip to their underwear to find Annie's purple pens. In "Intro to Political Science", it's shown that various study group members carve notches into the table. Abed marks whenever Jeff says a "Classic Winger" response, Jeff makes a notch whenever someone mentions his abs, and Troy makes a notch randomly for no real reason. In "Paradigms of Human Memory", the study group is working on a large scale diorama modeled after the study room on top of the study table. In "For A Few Paintballs More", the study group puts the table back together after the battle with City College is resolved.
In "Biology 101", Pierce returns to the study group describing the study table as "magic". In the same episode, Jeff hallucinates that the study table is the Monolith from "2001: A Space Odyssey" after being sprayed with monkey gas in the school's air vents. Later, still under the influence of the gas, he takes a fire ax to the table and tries to destroy it.
In the Study groups fourth year at Greendale, Jeff has a lot of anxiety over the semester due to his graduating early and returning to his former life as a lawyer. He decides to try and create a reason for him to stay be manipulating Abed. Jeff tosses a Yahtzee die hoping it will cause Abed to regress into obsessing over The Darkest Timeline again. The die lands in between the cracks of the study table without a conclusive number showing. ("Advanced Introduction to Finality").
