Rules on Visitor Access to Workspace

A portion of the desks are reserved for individuals that typically use the desks more than 70% of the work week. Other desks are available first come first served.
Scholars may apply for a dedicated workspace for a period of three to six months at a time. Visitors may renew their application to use the workspace for a longer time.
If visitors are absent or do not otherwise use the workspace regularly (less than 70%), they stand to lose their workspace.
