The UWM Libraries and the Graduate School offer a quiet space reserved for UWM doctoral students in which to work.

Access to the Scriptorium is limited to students currently enrolled in PhD programs. To register for access to the space, students may contact the Graduate School’s Doctoral Retention Specialist Shane Haensgen at
