Application for Research Room

Criteria for Assignment of Research Rooms:

Eligibility for research rooms is based on one or more of the following criteria. The Dean of Libraries will review and score all applications (awarding up to 5 points on each of the criteria). These scores will be used to assign rooms when there are more eligible applicants than rooms.

  • Applicant is engaged in a research or writing project that requires uninterrupted study for more than a few days.
  • Applicant needs extended access to a large number of library circulating and/or reference materials.
  • Applicant is engaged in USD committee work that requires uninterrupted study and storage of large amounts of textual materials.

Note: Applicants who do not have private office space elsewhere on campus receive priority. 

Research Room assignments last a maximum of one semester. You must (re)-apply each semester.
