Individual carrels (desks)

Individual study carrels are available in the various reading areas. Carrels may not be held over meal hours or while attending lectures. Library materials left at the carrels will be reshelved. Please do not leave your belongings unattended as thefts have occured in the past.

Drinks in covered containers and cold food may be consumed at the carrels. Hot food is not permitted. Use the bins provided for wrappers and leftovers. For your convenience, there is a café at the entrance to the Library.

Persons who misuse the carrels will be asked to leave the building.

Grad carrels

Graduate carrels, with lockable drawers, are available for researchers at Wilfrid Laurier University, with priority given to those in a graduate program. These carrels are located along the outside perimeter of floors 4 through 7 in the Library.

Carrels are assigned on a first come-first served basis by the Library and can be signed out for the term. Staff at the User Services Desk on the main floor of the Library will assign the key.

While anyone may use these desks, they must yield the desk to an assigned user upon request.

Since quiet work space at the University is limited, researchers are asked to relinquish carrels they no longer need. If Library staff determine that the space is not being used, it will be reassigned.
