A limited number of study carrels (with lockers) on Level 3 can be reserved for one academic year by senior thesis writers. Thesis Carrels are given out on a first-come, first-served basis to current Senior Thesis writers in the beginning of each fall term.

Study carrels without attached lockers may not be reserved, officially or unofficially, by any student.


The Thesis Carrel application for the 2023-2024 academic year will go live on Tuesday, September 19th, 2023 at 7:15 AM. When the application is live, you may click here to apply for a Thesis Carrel.


In addition, there are book lockers on Levels 2 and 3, which are available to any student. Lockers may be reserved for a full academic year, and do not require an application. See our Library & Information Technology staff for available lockers any time throughout the year.
