Thomas D. Clark Graduate Study

The Thomas D. Clark Graduate Study is a dedicated study space exclusively for graduate students (master's and PhD/EdD) and postdoctoral fellows/scholars. The space is made available through a partnership between UK Libraries and The Graduate School. 

This inspiring space is named in honor of Dr. Thomas D. Clark, long-time professor and chair of History at UK who helped establish UK Libraries' Special Collections and the University Press of Kentucky. The study includes six desktop computers, sixteen study bays, and twelve private study "pods" with outlets for your personal devices, along with eight lounge chairs for reading, a large table for group work, and a stunning view looking west over the campus.

Visit the Clark Study on the fifth floor of William T. Young Library, in the west wing. (Scroll down for a floor map.) The Clark Study is accessible via UK ID card tap. All graduate students' and postdocs' IDs should be programed to grant access. If your ID does not work or you have any trouble accessing the study, please contact Melissa Barlow with UK Libraries for assistance.

The study will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis during the COVID-19 pandemic. Please follow all recommended social distancing guidelines, and consider finding another place to study if the area is already occupied by enough other students so as to make the space potentially unsafe.
