Graduate Research Rooms

COVID-19 Update – The Graduate Research Rooms remain closed through Winter Term 1. Applications can be submitted for Winter Term 2 with confirmation taking place in January 2022.

The Music, Art and Architecture (MAA) Library has dedicated secure study space for graduate researchers that includes storage space for their library materials.  Interested users may apply for access to the Graduate Research Rooms (GRR) for the Fall/Winter term or the Summer terms; applications are renewable, depending upon demand.  Priority will be given to persons engaged in graduate degree programs at UBC whose research requires extensive use of collections in the I. K. Barber Learning Centre and who do not have a secure space to store library materials on campus.
Before submitting an application please review the rooms’ Terms of Use Agreement.
To renew your space in the GRRs please fill out the Renewal Form.
Current GRR users are encouraged to complete an Evaluation Form.
