Services - Faculty Services - Carrels
Faculty carrels are available to faculty members whose research requires Memorial Library resources

Memorial Library has a limited number of carrels available for use by faculty members.

To request a carrel, please fill out the Faculty Carrel Application.






These spaces are reserved for UW-Madison Professors, Assistant Professors, and Associate Professors on campus who use the Memorial Library collection heavily.  Due to the limited number of carrels, they are shared by at least two faculty members.


The carrels are located on the 5th floor


We require individuals to renew their carrels once every three years.  An email will be sent about the renewing procedures when applicable.

Vacating Carrel / Returning Key

To vacate a carrel, please return the key in person to Room 170, Memorial Library (Circulation Office) during office business hours.  You will be required to fill out an exit form.  To view hours and contact information, visit the Circulation Office page.
