Library carrels are now open for short-term reservations through our new online carrel reservation system.

Carrel Reservation Policy:

  • L3 carrels are all available for use by students on a first-come-first-serve basis (no reservation required).
  • L4 houses open and closed carrels. Open carrels 401 – 444 are available to be reserved for up to 8 hours.
  • L4 closed carrels are unavailable.
  • L5 houses open carrels which are also available to be reserved, with the exception of carrels 560 – 572.
  • Carrel users with a reservation on L4 and L5 have priority over walk-in users.
  • Carrels may be reserved up to one week in advance and reservations are limited to one carrel per student per day.
  • Reservations may be canceled if the carrel is vacant 15 minutes or more after the reservation start time.
