Graduate carrels are authorized for use by UCR graduate students only. We have 20 semi-enclosed graduate carrels near natural light, set up with a shelf, lamp and ergonomic chair. Five carrels are reservable for the academic year by Ph.D. advanced candidacy students. Unreserved carrels are available for general Masters/Ph.D. students on a first-come, first served basis.

All graduate students must submit a request to be authorized to use the carrels. You may also request a lockable mobile cart to keep research materials secure.
