Mason PhD students who need dedicated space for dissertation work on the Fairfax campus may now apply for exclusive use of the new Dissertation Writers Room (DWR) in Fenwick Library. Located in Room 518, Wing C, the room features eleven assigned carrels and shelves to store research materials. Students are provided a unique door code to access the DWR.
Mason doctoral students, who have passed their comprehensive exams and are in good standing with the University and the University Libraries, are eligible to request a space. Spaces in the DWR are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis (based on date/time submitted) until room capacity is filled. Doctoral students will have use of the DWR through mid-August 2014.
A student’s academic standing must be verified by his/her department; this verification is required to complete the DWR Request Form. Eligible students may download the form and return it to the Fenwick Library Circulation Desk. DWR Request Forms are also available at the Fenwick Circulation Desk. Questions? Contact Fenwick Library Circulation, 3-2240.
