Semester Lairs

Semester Lairs

Spring 2019 Assignments are complete. We will reopen the application process at the beginning of the Summer Session.

Semester Lairs are reserved:

  • For the length of the semester.
  • By individual graduate students enrolled in a degree-granting program.
    • Semester Lairs are assigned first to doctoral students enrolled in 699 dissertation hours and master's students working on their thesis / final project.
  • During Open Enrollment. Upcoming open enrollment periods are announced at the end of the semester.   

Semester Lair application process:

  • Applicants will be notified about assignments by the end of the open enrollment period.
  • Priority is given to applicants enrolled in dissertation/thesis hours or a program equivalent such as a final project/portfolio. Priority applicants will be assigned a Semester Lair (if one is available).
  • All other applications by graduate students will be evaluated near the end of Open Enrollment in the order they were received.
  • A waiting list will be maintained through the semester. Waiting lists are only good for the current semester; you must re-apply at the start of each semester during Open Enrollment.
