School Carrel for K-12 and universities

Whether at a university or high school library, study carrels offer a measure of privacy for students and foster concentration for students. Intended for individual learning, the Milder Study Carrel includes ample desktop space as well as a built-in shelf to accommodate paperwork and books. Lighting options can be installed below the shelf for those late-night sessions. 

  • Study carrels in single, back-to-back, and ganged configurations

  • All panels in 3/4” birch plywood

  • Choice of transparent film or UV lacquer finishes HPL or FORBO desktop linoleum overlays

  • Vertical supports in 1 1/6”Ø aluminum tubing

  • On levelers

  • Power and lighting optional


Individual Storage

At academic libraries, in particular, students use the carrels for extended periods of time. For this reason, we offer the option of lockable storage to allow users to securely step away from the study carrel without losing their work area. Storage is offered in acrylic or metal screens so that contents are easily visible in these 'hot desk' hotelling stations. 

The carrels can be arranged into large groups and clusters for maximum space efficiency in your study hall or open space plan. Single units can be used to create a corridor (or wall panel) to subdivide your space. 

Milder Furniture offers a range of products for the k-12 school library and university / academic library setting, including short-term lockers and mobile storage units.
