Graduate Student Carrels

The University of Delaware offers dedicated library research space for a limited time in the Morris Library to University of Delaware matriculated graduate students who have a valid University of Delaware I.D. There are 26 graduate carrels located on the second and third floors of the Morris Library. The carrels are:

  • Assigned for one academic year, with the possibility of renewal.
  • Assigned on a “first come, first served” basis.
  • Assigned to two UD graduate students simultaneously, with each graduate student occupant assigned to his/her own unique locking shelf to store personal materials.
  • Equipped with task lighting and data connectivity ready for use with the individual’s laptop using a roaming IP address.

University of Delaware graduate students interested in obtaining a carrel may obtain the Application for Graduate Student Carrels from the the Circulation and Reserve Desk in the Morris Library. You may also download a copy here:  Application for Graduate Carrel.
