Carrel occupants have a reference use only allowance of 20 books which are issued to the carrel for one week at a time by staff at the Service Desk. Books must be renewed by the carrel occupant, either at the Service Desk or online using the carrel name and membership number displayed on the carrel key fob. Late renewals of books issued to the carrel will incur fines. Late returned keys will incur a fine at the daily carrel rental rate.
Carrel users not in possession of their key will not be able to access the carrel. Lost carrel keys will incur a £20 non-refundable fine. Carrel users will not be able to access the carrel while a replacement key is being cut.
In keeping with Senate House Library food and drink policy, no food or drink, except bottled water, should be consumed in the carrel.
During the occupancy of the carrel, the occupant is expected to keep the carrel reasonably neat and tidy and leave it clean, tidy and empty of personal possessions and any litter at the end of occupancy. Any waste should be placed in the recycling bins located at the entrance of each reading room. Carrels will be routinely cleaned once every month. If you notice a problem with your carrel, please report any cleaning issues to the 4th floor Service Desk.
Once a year, during the summer vacation period, all carrels will be deep cleaned during operating hours and access will be restricted for a short time.
Prior to booking, please read the Library regulations and the additional terms and conditions covering carrel rental.
