Q. What is a carrel?
Students carrels are the semi-enclosed desks that you might have seen scattered around if you have visited the library. You and a partner sign up for them during carrel sign-up and it is yours for the semester. Each carrel has a desk with a bookshelf and a chair. Some are located beside windows and have outlets nearby. Some are more tucked away and some are located in the middle of the floor. You can keep any textbooks, study supplies, and checked out library books in your carrel. If you are interested, I would stroll around the various floors and see which carrels your might be interested in. Each one is numbered, so I would jot down a few numbers and bring those with you to carrel sign-up.
