Study Carrels

There are a limited number of locked individual study carrels at Dupré Library for use by current UL Lafayette faculty and graduate students. Carrels are assigned on a first come first serve basis. 

Faculty must renew their carrel at the end of each spring semester and graduate students at the end of spring and fall semesters. Carrel occupants will be contacted via email during their renewal period.  If the carrel occupant does not renew the carrel or return the key their deposit is forfeited and the carrel is reassigned.  Exceptions to this policy are made by the library dean only.

***Information about group study rooms and individual study cubicles that are available to all UL Lafayette students can be found here***


Rules and Regulations

When a carrel is rented, the occupant must review the following list of rules. A failure to abide by these rules can result in confiscation of the carrel, forfeiture of the key deposit, and fines for damage to library property.

1. Locked study carrels at Dupré Library are rented to Faculty and Graduate Students.

2. Graduate students may reserve a carrel on a semester to semester basis; faculty may reserve carrels on a yearly basis. The carrels may be renewed at the end of the reservation term. Each owner will receive a renewal form before the term expires. The renewal form must be returned by the renewal date or the owner will be charged for key replacement and the carrel will be reassigned.

3. A $2.00 key deposit is required and is refundable when the key is returned at the end of the carrel reservation term or if leaving the university.

4. Carrels are not completely enclosed and are, therefore, not secure. The library is not responsible for items left in carrels. This includes library books.

5. Library books left in carrels must be checked out to the carrel’s occupant. Library personnel will check carrels periodically and books left in carrels that are not checked out will be returned to the shelf.

6. Be courteous. Keep noise to a minimum. Always use headphones when listening to laptop, tape recorder, CD player, etc.
