Carrels Request Form

The Gold Meir Library has a limited number of study carrels that faculty and staff members engaged in research and writing that requires extended use of library resources may request for assignment. Faculty may also approve carrel use for graduate students engaged in similar research and writing.

Carrel assignments are for the duration of one academic year (September 1 to August 31) and may be renewed annually. Requests for shorter duration assignments may be accommodated based upon availability. Carrels are intended to be used for research and writing and are not offices or storage lockers. Carrel users must observe the UWM Libraries’ User Rights and Responsibilities guidelines and adhere to the Policies & Procedures for the Assignment & Use of Carrels.
