Access to the College Green area of campus will be restricted until further notice. PennCard holders and some Penn affiliates may enter and exit Van Pelt-Dietrich Library Center through the Rosengarten Undergraduate Study Center on the ground floor, and may enter and exit the Fisher Fine Arts Library through the 34th Street entrance to Meyerson Hall. See our Service Alerts for details.

Fisher Fine Arts Carrels

Students in Weitzman School of Design and History of Art programs are eligible to apply for a carrel. Due to the limited number of carrels, graduate students in a PhD program or last year of Master’s study are given priority. Students at other points in these programs and seniors in the History of Art program embarking on their thesis will be placed on a wait list.

Using carrels

The benefit of using a carrel is that one can maintain a core collection of materials in one place, charged to their carrel. These materials are not to leave the building and are subject to recalls. If you would like to take a book charged to your carrel out of the library, you must have it charged to your Penn account.

Submit your application or contact finearts@pobox.upenn.edu for more information.
