Carrel Sign-Up Procedure

Share this article

Returning Students

If you are a returning student who informed us that you desired to change your carrel assignment, you may do so August 27-28 via TWEN. After you have chosen your new carrel, please remember to delete your previous carrel assignment and to promptly transfer any personal items to your new carrel so that your previous carrel is available to other students.

Carrel combinations will be available at the Law Library circulation desk.

Please note: To qualify for an assigned carrel, you must be an enrolled student. If you have carrel or desk space elsewhere in BLB (for example, in Legal Clinic, Law Review, TLCP, JCL, or JGRJ), you will not be eligible for a carrel in the Law Library while you have alternative space.
