  • Assigned for one academic year, with the possibility of renewal by students who comply with the policies and procedures for use of the carrel.
  • 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.
