Graduate Study Carrels

gradCarrel
Graduate study carrels are small offices that can be used by full-time graduate students who require quiet study space to prepare theses/dissertations. The Harriet Irving Library is pleased to offer two options–bookable graduate carrels and private graduate carrels.

Bookable Graduate Carrels

Ten study carrels on the 5th floor of the Harriet Irving Library have been designated “bookable graduate carrels” that can be booked only by full-time graduate students, free of charge, in advance, for a period of one week (Monday @ 10am until the following Monday @ 9am). A refundable $30 key deposit is required to claim the carrel key.

Book online!

Private Graduate Carrels

Twenty study carrels on the 5th floor of the Harriet Irving Library have been designated “private graduate carrels” that can be rented by graduate students for either one term or one academic year; the cost to rent a private graduate carrel is $50/term, plus a refundable $30 key deposit. Preference will be given to PhD students who are working on their dissertations and who are in greatest need of this space.
