EFFECTIVE August 1, 2011: Individual Carrel Rentals to be Discontinued

Over the past few semesters, we have heard students’ increasing concerns about the need for more individual quiet study space. In order to meet the needs of as many students as possible, the current system of individual, semester-long carrel rentals is being discontinued beginning August 1st, 2011.

No new carrel applications will be accepted for the Fall semester. Unassigned carrels will have their locks removed and will be available to any student for temporary use anytime the library is open.

Existing Carrel Holders:

If you are currently renting a carrel for the summer, you will be able to continue to rent your carrel until you graduate or leave the University.

Please note that the fee for carrel rental will increase from $10.00 to $50.00 effective September 1, 2011.


A limited number of Faculty Study Rooms are available. Please contact the Carrel Manager at 713-743-9710 for details and availability.
