Research RoomS

Individual research rooms are available for a term-long loan period to all graduate students with documented research needs.

  • All rooms are checked out at the beginning of each academic term until the end of the academic term. After the 2nd week of the term, any room requests will be for the following academic term.
  • Academic status of the student must be verified by their advisor to qualify for a research room. Students may bring a signed letter on OSU letterhead from their advisor to the Circulation Desk, or students can ask their advisor to send an email to valley.circ@oregonstate.edu. Letters emailed by the student will not be accepted.
  • Letters need to include the student's full name and OSU ID number. Doctoral students need to confirm they have scheduled or completed their oral exams (Doctoral students letter example). Masters students need to confirm they are writing a thesis and will be entering their final 1-2 term (Masters students letter example).

Once you have received an email that a research room is available, the key card may be picked up at the Circulation Desk. Each research room is equipped with a table, chair, shelves and a cork board. Wireless access is available in all rooms. All research rooms are located on the 6th floor.
