Apply for a semester study carrel

Note: The application form will not work until 8:00 am on the first day of classes and will be disabled once all carrels have been checked out.

The primary function of study carrels is to provide students, faculty, and professional staff with space in the library for their study and research.

Semester carrels are located on the 2nd and 3rd floors. They are assigned at the beginning of each semester on a first-come-first-served basis. Special arrangements can be made by individuals with special needs.

Loan Period

  1. Semester Carrels are assigned for one semester. We will email you with information about your carrel assignment, and to explain how to pick up the key to your carrel. You'll keep the key for the whole semester.
  2. Carrel keys should be returned before 4:00 pm on the last day of the semester. An overdue fine of $.25 per day will be charged for a key returned late. If the key is not returned or lost key paid for by the due date, you will be fined and ineligible for a carrel in the following semester.
  3. The library does not have duplicate keys. If a key is lost, the assignee will not have access to his/her carrel until the key is replaced. A non-refundable fee of $25.00 will be charged for key replacement.
