carrel

(noun) A partially partitioned nook in or near the stacks in a library, used for private study.

Synonyms: cubicle, stall

Usage: There are too many distractions at home, so when I really need to study, I go to the library, find a secluded carrel, and study there.

Name a carrel in the beloved stacks of Watson Library

For decades, KU Libraries have created adaptable spaces and resources to support student learning. And, while some things change, some stay the same. The beloved carrels, the cozy study nooks within Watson’s stacks, remain exceptionally popular. Students still nestle in to read, write and prepare for exams. You, too, may have completed an important paper or pored over an insightful book inside a study carrel.




KU Libraries have designated a limited number of Watson Library study carrels as naming opportunities, which will help to fund the renovations. Naming a study carrel allows you to secure your own place in history right here on the KU campus – offering a wonderful and meaningful way to carry on the legacy of your family or a beloved professor, or to recognize a fellow graduate or student as they approach graduation. A special plaque will be placed in each named space to recognize your gift and its intent.

Ever since the Agnes Library has been undergoing
partial renovations , the students have encountered
other students of widely varying studies within the
reduced carrel area.
