The CMU Libraries has 36 Individual Research Rooms located on the 3rd and 4th floors for use by faculty, staff, emeritus, doctoral and graduate students. Research rooms are intended to provide a convenient location within the library for those individuals engaged in research using library material.

However, if rooms are available or become available, mid semester, they will be assigned to the most qualified applicants.
