Library Carrels & Lockers

Carrels in the Library are provided for members of College without access to suitable private study space. Lockable drawers are also available in the Library.

There are 7 casual carrels that are available daily without prior booking on a first-come, first-served basis.

As demand for the 27 individually allocated carrels normally exceeds supply, there is an allocation process, which is reviewed from time to time. The Senior Tutor, in conjunction with the Accommodation Office, is responsible for the allocation and use of carrels, administration of keys, paperwork, etc.

Requests for a carrel should be made by completing a College Carrel Application Form outlining the reasons for the request.

Carrels are allocated in the first instance to those whose departmental, faculty library, or private facilities for work are inadequate.
