Dissertation Writer's Room

Content section: 

Located at the rear of Graduate Services (208 Doe), the Dissertation Writer's Room (Room 215) is a space dedicated to doctoral students advanced to candidacy. There are 24 lockers in the room that can be checked-out for an academic year. Keys to the lockers can be checked out at the Graduate Services circulation desk. The hours for the room are the same as for Graduate Services. Bring your UCB ID to show when you enter 208 Doe, as Graduate Services is reserved for the exclusive use of UCB graduate students, faculty, and staff.
